The tour is a full-day dedicated to two Cathar Castles, Lastours and Minerve. We will ensure that you enjoy an unforgettable experience with James McDonald.
Lastours is the site of four separate fortifications, three of which date from Cathar times. There are also vestiges of an even older castrum (castle and associated village). The site is a French Historical Monument.
The Cathar Castles here, include Cabaret, the effective headquarters of the resistance to the Crusaders for many years, as the Lords of Cabaret defied sieges and intimidation, and led a guerrilla campaign against the French invaders.
The four semi-ruined castles spectacularly located on top of adjacent hills. They are well spaced, and the paths are rugged, so walking to all of them requires a certain level of fitness and good footwear.
