  • The strong Queyras is a beautiful 13th century fortification which sits on a hill just above Chateu Queyras, a village along the river Guil. The Fort is rich in history and is well preserved, both outside and inside. Beautiful are the numerous halls the beautiful stairs, narrow, sometimes going up inside. From the Hill you can enjoy a magnificent view of the village of Chateau and the Valley of the river Guil. Certainly the Fort worth a visit.

  • Awesome place!
  • Located on a rocky spur overlooking the village and the torrent, this castle from the 13th century, modified by Vauban in the 17th century, is quite nice. The site is well maintained. It is wrong then explain the few visitors encountered in this month of July 2016. This is perhaps a too high rate (€10 per adult)? Is this related to too few stagings? Or an exhibition of historical panels on the 2nd World War, without apparent connection with the place? Or finally with a cashier brings not necessarily very?
