Château de Roquefixade, 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.

Vanuit montségur ernaartoe gewandeld. Via bossen en velden met koeien. Het jachtseizoen was helaas alweer geopend. Kwam langs een oorlogsmonument.

Came by a war memorial. Dozens of men of the Maquis are 6 July 1944 shot by German soldiers. Then continue to Roquefixade. Luckily I had bread, biscuits and water. The only terrace that was sold Saturday, only drink, chips and zoétigheden unfortunately. Then move on to the high Castle. Great views. Unfortunately I could not come close to the Castle.show original

Cédric BagassienNo visit to itself, but after 10 min of rather steep hike was an exceptional landscape under the eyes. The ruins of the Castle are now closed because of the risk of subsidence, caution if you walk through the chain.show original
