A village that perpetuates the ancestral agricultural traditions
A little bit of history
After that, the Marquis de Thézan-Poujol, descendant of Monseigneur de Fleyres, was lord of Minerve, Vélieux, Rieussec and Boisset. But having no land, the inhabitants were represented by consuls.
In 1789, Vélieux had about 120 inhabitants.
Pierre Bessieux and Barthélémy Tresor were the last two consuls representing the village community. It was Bessieux who was appointed on 13th March 1789 at the "place intended to hold assemblies" to represent Vélieux in Carcassonne for the election of the deputies of the Tiers-Etat.
