Château de Peyrepertuse

Back to... Holiday Homes The Magazine

Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Languedoc's most famous Cathar castle

This 13th century fortress of Peyrepertuse is perched on a limestone cliff at a height of 800m, offering a stunning birds eye view of the surrounding countryside. The site has been occupied since Roman times and there is evidence of a castle being built here as early as 1070.

There is a car park at the bottom of the cliff and it is a short (approx. 15 minutes) but steep walk up to the castle.

You can access the castle every day except Christmas eve/Christmas day and New Year's eve/New Year's day.

The ticket price is €9 for an adult and €4.50 for a child (between 6 & 15 yrs). You can also hire an audio guide to learn more about the history of the site for a cost of €4.
