  • Simply amazing! An incredible castle right on top of a mountain! Strongly recommend a visit.
  • We had a very windy day but up there the view was fantastic and the secret path to the lower defence chamber was extraordinary
  • Amazing historical building. It was closed for reconstruction weeks ago
  • Spectacular drive up to one of the amazing Cathar Castles. Well worth a visit along with Cucugnan and the Gorge de Galamus
  • It is a nice fort with amazing view and extreme windy on the top. I also lost my drone near the top because of the wind 😬.
