  • In many ways the nicest castle of the several we visited. It is privately owned and has not been subject to extensive renovation as some of the others seem to have. The castle is however in a reasonably well preserved state and there are several rooms to visit in the main "donjon" which have wealth of carved faces including a number of musicians. Access is easy albeit with a drive up a very steep and narrow road but then only a 5 minute walk. There is a disabled car parking area right next to the entrance up a bumpy track. If you are in the area well worth a visit
  • One more of the Cathars way castles, great views, lots of history, if you are doing this route its a 'must see'.
