(300+ reviews on the web)
Castle
Le Moulin De Lastours are four related castles on a rocky spur overlooking a village and surrounding valleys and rivers. The French Ministry of Culture listed this as a historic monument, and archaeological digs are still being conducted here. Cabaret castle is the primary citadel of the group. You can view a polygonal keep, a tower, ramparts with a round walk, and a crenellated wall constructed with irregular material. Tour Régine is the smallest of the fortresses, and you'll notice that its curtain wall has collapsed. This three-story tower flanked by a spiral staircase was built primarily with white limestone. Surdespine is the least-preserved of the four castles. It features a square tower, rectangular curtain wall, semicircular arched windows, and defensive "murder holes." The Quertinheux Castle has a circular tower and a polygonal curtain wall.

  • The Château of Lastours (actually 4) is an exceptional site. The setting is splendid and hiking to access is nice although sports. It is imperative to bring good shoes and a water bottle. The view is absolutely gorgeous and the ticket allows access to a promontory located a little further for an overview. Do if you visit the area.

  • This visit is first a nice walk along a trail that winds through the Woods, on the side of hills. We hear the gurgle of the River below and the four castles are on the walkers. Each has its own characteristics and reveals a different point of view. A visit to breathtaking, figuratively and literally.

  • A nice ride with points of views breathtaking! Rather well preserved ruins but damage that some people leave their garbage on the road... No sporting attention to abstain because the rise is pretty rough! And I do not advise this output to families with children at an early age because security on some place leaves to be desired.

  • Hospitality and bread are excellent. Possibility to have lunch on the terrace of a salad. Merchants who participated in a broadcast on M6 season 3 of the best bakery.
