Cathar Castles or the Pyrenees : From Carcassonne, via the Canal du Midi and the Med to Montsegur.

From the Mediterranean to the Pyrenees Ariegeoises in the heart or the sun blessed Corbieres region, or at Montsegur is where you can find the secret trails and castles or the chateaux Cathar. Imposing stone castles built high up in rocky crags of pogs. 

These fortresses are the symbol of a tragic, political intrigue and drama that shook the South or France.
