The Cathar Castles

The Cathar Castles

The name Cathar Castles is infact a recent invention but this doesn't detract from the fact that these Castles have played an important role in the region's turbulent history and are situated in the most imposing places, high up on rocky outcrops with stunning views over the surrounding land - perfect to spot advancing troops and to hold out against crusading armies. Numerous walking routes criss cross these Castles and many are surrounded by vineyards and small picturesque villages.  Most can also be accessed by coach and then a walk to the summit and the stunning views will be a just reward!
