  • cold reception, has the limit of mockery, we take still 4 places at 5 euros, arrived in the Chamber, a large courtyard no maintained, many door closed, an Assistant not wanting to not give information, in the end just a ride to visit, restore a va fast, short heurueusement a great view. the word written on the sign in the parking lot are probably not for nothing

  • The Castle, what remains of it, is fine. It is easily accessible and well preserved, with acceptable setting. The views are really spectacular

  • Passage in the area we wanted to visit a Cathar Castle... We paid dear (€18 for 2 adults and 2 kids 10 and 12 years) for a castle in ruins, except for the Dungeon. The explanations are brief (and hard to read) and the "superbly restored" Dungeon rooms are covered with pigeon droppings. Only the slide show at the end of the visit gives interesting explanations. The view is beautiful from the top of the Dungeon.

  • Amazing views. Interesting history. 5€ might be a bit steep for what you get inside.
  • The best castle in France, 5 mins walk from the car park and I can't recommend enough the view from the roof of the keep - absolutely breathtaking just be careful as the walls are only knee height so watch the kids !!
  • View from the top is stunning. Chap on the gate was friendly. Worth an hour of your time for sure.
  • Newly resurfaced access road to car park compared with previous chaotic road. Contrary to many reviews I found the person at the entrance where you pay very nice and welcoming. The site is well documented on various boards throughout the castle . Access to the top of the donjon is now well lit with an led cord , no need to bring a torch. A lot of care in the restauration has been made to give a real feel of life from the 12th century onward. A good 2 hours can be spent admiring all aspects of this so well preserved Cathar castle and the views form the donjon roof top are magnificent. Well worth a detour in you find yourself in the region.
  • Stunning views from the top of the keep but you'll need a torch to get up there!! Definitely worth it though!
