Carcassonne to Perpignan

I will be making a one day drive from Bordeaux to Barcelona on Saturday, April 7. Planning to use A61 to Carcassone. Will stop there in late morning, leaving around 1300 -1400 for Barcelona. I'm wondering what experience others might have in driving south from Carcassonne to Perpignan via Limoux? Is this a reasonable option or is it best to continue along A61 to Narbonne then head south?

Drive via Limoux : you'll see the cathar castles of Peyrepertuse, Queribus and Puilaurens on your way.

Drive along A61 to Narbonne : not very scenic. Becomes very scenic between Narbonne and Perpignan (salt water lakes, flamingoes, Salses Castle, Mount Canigou).
