TS8 - PEYREPERTUSE CASTLE & QUERIBUS CASTLE - 9H30 - $495.17
Departure from Toulouse
From 08.15 to 17.45
The walk up to the Peyrepertuse Castle takes about 15 minutes. The walk is not very difficult but requires a constant effort walking uphill. There are a few steps and rocks along the way. Be sure to bring comfortable walking shoes.
The Castle is in ruins, but they are extraordinary ruins!
You will first get to see the lower grounds, shaped like a triangle, where the walls are still standing in places, as well as the dungeon and the former chapel. After crossing the medieval entrance you will get to climb up the Saint Louis stairway, which was dug directly into the rock, in order to access the Sant Jordi dungeon. A breathtaking view awaits you from up there.
On a clear day you may see all the way to the Mediterranean across the Roussillon plain from dungeon’s terrace.
