A bit of a walk uphill but not too difficult with good shoes and the views are well worth it. Not large but well preserved in places and a lovely location. Great to combine with Cucugnan and village not to miss!

It's a bit of a rigorous walk up at my age but worth the effort. It is so isolated and mysterious up on it's lofty perch. The views of the surrounding countryside and Chateau de Peyrepertuse are stunning. So get a bit of exercise and climb up to a fairly well preserved border castle.

This out of the way castle requires a 10-minute (minimum) climb up a path. A great view of the surrounding area.

This is a medieval castle very high up on a hill. Both the structure and the view are magnificent. You overlook the town and Valley below, and can see the Mediterranean ocean in the distance. Don't miss it.

As elderly travellers, we were happy to drive up to the Chateau. We could see the Chateau from the road at Cucugan. The road up is an easy climb on a surfaced road. Once there, there is a short walk from the park. We didnt venture into the building however were impressed with the stone and construction.

Reputed to be the last of the Cathar strongholds on what was the border between France & Spain, this is definitely worth making the effort to see. It's a bit of a trek and a steep-ish path to get there but you're rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding area. It's worth driving around through Maury to get the best... More

It takes quite a way up, but there is a decent path so it's only a good walk. Absolutely amazing views, dramatic building and it kind of leaves you a bit breathless. It's a lot smaller than Peyrepertuse and we almost felt sorry that you get around fairly quickly. But it's fantastic just to hang around, hear the wind howl... More

This is a very well preserved ruin on the top of a small peak. It's a 10-15 minute uphill walk on a nice wide path. Once you get to the chateau there there are a number of stairs to climb to get inside and more stairs once you're there, it's very worth it though. The views from the top are... More

This Chateau is really fabulous. the location is exceptionally dramatic AND unlike most other sites allows partial access to a higher start point.The walk is much less taxing than others such as Monsegur but the stairs in the chateau may challenge some. the views from the top are absolutely unsurpassed and on a good day one can see into Spain,...

Fantastic views from this mountain top ruin. Only a 10 minute walk from the carpark (with toilets and a small shop), this fantastic ruin has amazing panaramas. We got the audio guide but the winds made it difficult to hear. But you don't really need it. The views are simply amazing. Make sure you go all the way to the... More
