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

Drenched in history, visiting this castle is well worth the vertiginous journey to the car park. A fairly easy walk upwards to the site rewards with the most incredible 360 degree views. Very windy! One of our best days out.

If you have visited Montségur or Peyrepertuse, you will have no problem making the 10-minute hike up to Queribus. Once you get to the top, the views are amazing. Regarding the castle itself, much of it still remains. You will need a flashlight or the light from your cell phone to visit one area that is completely dark (and thus... More

For some its a bit overshadowed by its better known near neighbour but Queribus is a great place to visit; especially now all the works are finished and the restoration is complete. As well as the castle itself, which although small by comparison with some does have quite a few rooms to visit and explore and of course a fascinating... More

Ruins of an old Cathar fortification located high on a ridge with great views of the surrounding area. Interesting history. It takes a drive, short hike, and stair climb to get up into it, but very worthwhile.
