  • Nice site characteristic of the era of the castles in the Cathar land. A monument in ruins but filled with clues about his past and where by projecting a bit, it is possible to imagine or to question an earlier era so interesting (especially beyond the mere myth and images of Epinal). The natural and wild setting that surrounds this place gives him even more Majesty. Attention because the ascent gets but lets imagine what could feel those who defended this place in the past.

  • Very nice and great medieval castle among all those located in the vicinity. Access isn't very very difficult even if it climbs well but a lot to the castle of montsegur! (- The is really difficult to access) Too bad we missed the guided tour but there are small explanatory panels! Possible to do with children! I recommend!

  • After a small climb in the car, the reception on arrival is not really to the give you. We pay and then that's it, not an issue, not an explanation, no audio guide... it's all right if the Lady at the reception said hello. In short, the path to the castle is particularly difficult, more than peyrepertuse. With young children age on the back, our fitness was put to the test but we know when we visit the Cathar castles. When you arrive on site, you take full eyes, explanatory panels there but for a place like that here is clearly not enough. Of course there are the tour after lunch, but it is a pity not to have a device to do it at their own pace! One thing however, the view is superb recess! Was not for us.

  • Simply breathtaking - Puilaurens Castle is situated on a steep mountain hill. Beware, after driving the steep mountain gravel road, you need to climb the last part of the hill by foot, but when you reach the top, it'll be worth every drop of sweat from the climb.
  • Propper Game of Thrones stuff here, insane views.
  • One of the best "Cathar" castles.
  • Perfect
  • Cathar Castle located in a beautiful environment. Be well shod. The Castle inside is damaged. Do a good weather and not too hot because good climb. .
