These are really four castles next to each other on a hill. The old ruinous towers and walls are marvellous. Walking around is a bit dangerous at times - if you're a bit shaky I would not recommend going here. The scenery is better at many other castles. I was dropped off nearby by a bus departing in Carcassonne, but... More

We stayed near here and went to visit on our first day. What an utterly amazing place to visit. We sent hours just wandering around each of the 4 Chateaux and thoroughly enjoyed the whole place. Perfect for the history and also, the superb views.

We came here as part of a two week holiday in Languedoc Roussilon and we blown away by the beauty and history of the place. We came to a different part of Languedoc last year and went to Carcassonne for the day and found it far too spoilt and touristy with shops and food outlets within the castle walls. We... More

This is definitely a must-do/must-see attraction and activity in the region. With a group of 10 of us, we parked and walked up through town loving the views as we ascended. The walk up to the top of the mountain ridge from the museum entry below was steep in parts but not too long and well worth the effort. The... More

This was an unplanned detour from a wine tasting and it truly made our day. A challenging hike, that in places is not for the faint of heart, took us to the top of the mountain where all four castles are linked. A little homework beforehand on the lastours castles makes this quite a memory!

As all tourists must, we 'did' Carcassonne -- and then fled to the countryside for something a bit less tacky and tiring. We did not climb to the chateaux here, just looked at them from below, but the majesty of these broken walls and towers looming over the valley is one of the more memorable things we've seen. We came... More

One of the most surprising places I have seen, you climb along a winding path, pass through a cave and then the four castles suddenly appear in a beautiful garden of cypress trees. There is an ancient village and it is full of history (pretty gruesome). Fascinating and beautiful

We went to Lastours and drove in to the cutest town we had seen in the area. Just walking the town alongside the fast flowing river would be enough for anyone but there is a sensational group of 4 castles sitting atop a very high mountain above the town that takes your breath away. Whilst you have to be prepared... More

A most enjoyable trek to the top with spectacular views all the way. It probably needs a good two hours to do it justice and see all 4 castle ruins. It's a bit of a climb to the top and stout shoes would help, but we didn't have the 'most sensible footwear' on the day and it was no problem... More
