The Cathar Castles

The Cathar Castles.

The Cathar Castles on the border of Aude and Catalan Country.

Witness to a turbulent history, set off on a journey through time.

And let yourself be amazed by passing by Maury, Cucugnan, and Saint Paul de Fenouillet

With its fabulous constructions of the Cathar Castles such as the Quéribus castle

and one of the most impressive castles due to its 728m height, once at the top

you can contemplate the Fenouillèdes plain.

and breathtaking Peyrepertuse Castle if you had to see one this is the one you should choose

due to its unique construction blending with the mountain which makes it almost invisible.

After your visits, take the opportunity to visit the village of Duilhac sous Peyrepertuse and its gorges to refresh yourself there..

And also the natural bathtubs of Verdouble Gorges close to Tautavel.

Without forgetting the impressive Galamus Gorge and its hermitage of Saint Anthony of Galamus.

And having all traveled back in time, don't hesitate to meet our winegrowers for a few tastings

And discover the Maury wines which are the richness of the Catalan Country with its natural sweet wines and its wines.
