  • ... Quéribus is earned with a short walk climbing hard enough for the frail, to access the Castle-shaped. Plan of the water in the summer! At the top, like its neighbour Peyrepertuse, view to cut the breath. Site beautiful because a large force of evocation without offering anything other than its ramparts and towers only!

  • I take away from this nice tour of the castle of Quéribus an exceptional site. This castle built on a Rocky Hill, which can be seen from afar. It is quite isolated and it makes the site even more beautiful. He must first pay €6 to visit the Castle (in ruins), walk about 20 minutes (it climbs well...) and inquire an exceptional view bonus... In addition, a picnic area is planned in the surrounding nature, it allows us to enjoy a little more of this exceptional site.

  • Even if there is more thing without dout of the original Castle, he remains the last to visit in 1255, after Montségur. My last visit dates back more than 15 years, at the time we had just put su plaster on the walls through to ensure they continue to fall. He has been safe, works of wood allow access, finally it was restored, it was well worth. A bad taste even when the stones that served up the Dungeon on the last meter where the stairs resemble the concrete to be mistaken. But they say it's a choice of the architect who did not want to "false". In all cases really visit worth the effort (predict 6,50 euros per person, it is not given either)
