Château de Peyrepertuse


A site not to miss, Château de Peyrepertuse a 13th century ruined Cathar castle set high on a 800m high limestone cliff in Rouffiac-des-Corbières awards its visitors amazing panoramic views of vineyards and the village of Duilhac far below.

Since 1908 the site has been registered 'monument historique' by the French Ministry of Culture.

Château de Peyrepertuse along with Castle Quéribus, Castle Puilaurens, Castle Termes, and Castle Aguilar, situated atop rocky peaks are famously known as the 'Five Sons of Carcassonne'.

Rock climber can often be seen attempting to climb up the limestone cliff. A alternative route than taking the traditional Cather trail from the carpark, more adventurous hikers can depart from the village of Duilhac via a small path which leads up to Château de Peyrepertuse.
