Neffiès - a circle among the vines
The wine village of Neffiès, set amid the vineyards of the Hérault department in the central south of France, is small, but perfectly formed in the shape of a circle, with its streets and houses encircling the lovely Gothic church. Such villages, of which there are many in this region, are known as "circulades". They were constructed to withstand attacks from the invaders who came all too frequently from Spain and from other parts of France in mediaeval times.
