#153 of 224 in Historic Sites in Occitanie
Considered one of the Cathar castles, Château de Roquefixade sits on a cliff overlooking the village of Roquefixade. Records of the castle and the site date back to 1180 CE. The castle survived until 1632, when King Louis XIII ordered the destruction of Roquefixade as it served him no purpose and was costly to maintain. Make arrangements in advance to visit the exhibit in the Town Hall reception room. You can download a map of the grounds, which features dates associated with the different sections of the ruins.

    The ruins, located on a rocky spur, dominate a wide Valley in the face of the massif of Tabe. Since the Calm, prairie located above the Castle, in an impressive calm gaze goes Montsegur at the massif of the Lords 2.

    A ruined castle which can be visited from outside especially. It is not very big but the view is superb with the Castle, the Valley in the distance and the beautiful little village below. Free Castle
