  • Since his high pedestal of 697 meters, the fortress of Lapradelle-Puilaurens lock one of the doors of the Fenouillèdes, at the limit of Catalonia and Languedoc. During the crusade against the Albigenses she welcomed many Cathars personalities but never fell into the hands of Simon de Montfort. Guillaume de Peyrepetusse have even stayed there. It is a modified and enlarged from the 11th to the 13th century, Dungeon, surrounded by an enclosure crenellated with four laps. We reached the main gate by a ramp cut baffles to lead a kind of reduced oblique crenellated converging toward the entrance. The Court is surrounded by castellated walls where short path. Returning to the entrance we access to the enclosure of the Dungeon or are the remains of the donjon square, the Tower called Lady white and machicolations in the curtain wall. Fortified by St. Louis Castle, which housed a garrison of shops and housing record is found. Puilaurens is the most accomplished image of these nests of Eagles, impressive by their beautiful and defensive power by their architectural balance.

  • If someone has fun on Castle ruins or ancient fortifications, here most definitely would and still. Not to be recommended, because the road has many rocks and roots in the rain. Could be very smooth.

  • One of the best "Cathar" castles.
  • Imposing and impressive fortress. The castle of Puilaurens perched on its peak overlooks the surrounding area and does not go unnoticed particularly because it is particularly well preserved! It is unfortunately not possible to approach without going through the Fund for the visit... Too bad. Friendly hikes are to do in the area.

  • The climb to the castle is very rough from PUILAURENS but what happiness once at the top. 45 minutes of sports market go.
