When you take the time to visit the Cathar Castles in the So of France, very near the Spanish border, make sure you visit this exquisite spot! If you like to hike, park in Cucugnan and follow the yellow bars for a challenging hike! and either before or afterwards, visit the bakery in the old windmill in Cucugnan! The Roquefort/... More

High in the wilds of the eastern Pyrenees are at least four ruined fortresses that were among the last strongholds of the Cathars in the Middle Ages. Queribus happened to be the easiest for us to reach but I would encourage anyone interested in this fascinating aspect of cultural and religious history to visit the others as well. The region...

On our visit we had to contend with very high winds. I could not make it to the castle as the wind was battering me and pushing me around. Apparently this castle does have high winds to contend with....

Cathar castle overlooking the Rousillon plain towards Perpignan. Beautiful views and a very special pillared hall in the keep.

If visiting the area, a must see medieval Cathar chateau perched at the top of a mountain which faces south towards Canigou and Spain. The views are breathtaking and one can only imagine what it must have been like to have built and then occupied this wind-swept and isolated spot.

This is a must see in the Languedoc. Lovely drive upto the site, the castle draws you to it. 10 minute walk to the site, but it all gives you that feeling of walking back into history. The castle itself is awe inspiring. You straight away feel how high up you are and the views are amazing. You definitely feel... More

As a few others have mentioned the hairpin roads can be hairy on the way to the car park and be prepared for a walk to the top. We visited in September and the view was amazing you could see for miles. Well worth the long up-hill walk.

Visited this castle on an early Sunday morning in Early December is was cold and windy. The almost 1000 year castle is very well kept. It sits on top of a mountain and it is a fairly steep climb, but absolutely worth it. The views from from the observation tower are gorgeous.

One of the forts on the Cathar trail. Small fort but worth a visit especially for the panoramic view of the Pyrennes at the top of the chateau.

There are a series of these cathar castles dotted throughout the Aude region of Languedoc. Many are worth seeing, so I will rate them all at once because it is worthwhile getting your Cathar passport at the first one and then getting a discount at the rest. Spectacular. Try also Perypertuse, Aguillar, Carcasonne, Lapradelle, Abbey de Frontfroide and St. Hilare... More
