The Cathars, were an early Gnostic Christian sect, who ate no animal products (except fish), were non – violent, and very yogic like. Their fascinating history involves persecution as heretics by the Roman Catholic Church, and a crusade against them. The only crusade against other Chritsians, the Cathars were massacred and wiped out by the end of the 14th cent.The remains of these castles can be seen all over the region. Our favourites Queirbus, Peyrepertuse, Puilaurens, Puivert and Montsegur.
THE GORGES DE GALAMUS
The Gorges de Galamus is a heritage site, protected for its natural beauty. Walk or drive though the steep gorges, and climb down to see the Hermitage built into the rocks. River swimming is good here too. Ranked #2 of 126 Attractions in Pyrenees Orientales by Trip Advisor.
Natural site classified and protected, the grandiose site of the Gorges de Galamus will surprise you with its particular relief. The waters of the Agly dug these limestone walls over 500 meters deep to reach the Mediterranean.
PIC DU TARBESOU
Ideally set back from the chain of the Pyrenees, the Pic du Tarbésou reveals a vast panorama on Ariège, Aude, and Pyrénées Orientales.
The 10 km loop route is an opportunity to make a nice crest course on a little frequented route, we can find the secluded civilization along the blue lakes, where we can relax in the shade of pine trees, before starting the climb to the Coumeille de l'Ours.
