Beautiful and unspoiled - a really great treat. Don't expect a cafe beyond a vending machine or any paths suitable for heels, wheelchairs or pushchairs. The only way to see this is by a beautiful mini trek up the mountain. Not to be missed.
A great chateau to visit, but not for the faint hearted. Sensible shoes and legs that don't wobble! Good information available and the views along with the history are superb.
Don't miss this cathare castle, it's one of the best. You'll be able to make gorgeous photos. Also check out Quéribus, Puilaurens, Puivert and Las Tors (Montségur should be nice too). Be careful when it's raining, because the stones are slippery.
After visiting 4 other castles in the region we all agreed this castle was by far the best with the most amazing views in all directions. We visited on a hot sunny day and could see the Mediterranean Sea in the distance. The climb was worth all the effort.
We visited a number of the cathar castles whilst visiting the region, but this was definitely a highlight. The climb is challenging and I would recommended heeding the advice for proper footwear as I nearly slipped once or twice on my flip flops! There was a very interesting (free) falconry display at 2.30pm. Wouldn't recommend it for really little people.... 更多
We visited the chateau on a scorcher of a day and to be fair the climb to the castle is not for the faint hearted, however we managed to time our arrival for the beginning of the best display of falconry I have witnessed. Well worth a visit.
We visited Queribus and Peyrepertuse castles on the same day. You can see each castle from the other over the rugged landscape. At Peyrepertuse we bought audio guides which were informative and entertaining - the commentary was someone pretending to be a French soldier visiting the castle hundreds of years ago. It was difficult initially to understand the accent but... 更多
Saw this on a French TV station whilst staying overnight on arriving in a very wet France. Decided to combine following the route of the canal du midi with a visit to the Catharsis region. Not disappointed ......amazing chateau perched on a rocky precipice....straight out of Game of Thrones.....complete with eagles circling. A must visit place.
Decided to come here on the back of great TripAdvisor reviews. In no way was I disappointed. The car park is about 2/3rds of the way up the climb. The rest happens on foot. So this is only really suitable for folk with reasonable health. It would be totally unsuitable for pushchairs. There is a stiff climb but the views... 更多
The Château de Peyrepertuse is one of the truly genuine Cathar castles and is worth the trip. In common with most other castles in the region, it was used to guard the old border with Spain and its mountaintop location in the Corbières region offers stunning views of the valley in the adjoining Fenouillèdes district. An unexpected bonus was a... 更多
