Montségur

Montségur

The last stand of the Cathars took place here and this stunning castle perched on a rocky outcrop, really evokes the dramatic end of this enigmatic people.  The tiny village down below houses a museum, an artisanal bakers and a couple of resturants and cafés.  Views from the top of the castle to all the surrounding valley nearly as far as the sea.  A real must for anyone interested in the history of the Cathars, or who want to experience an exhilarating climb to the top.
