Exceptional place of the Cathar Area


Lastours, in the running for UNESCO.

You can vote :

A unique architectural and archaeological complex :

- Four castles: Cabaret, Régine Tower, Surdespine, Quertinheux.

- A medieval village.

- Natural cavities.

- Remains of a primitive church "la Vielha Gleisa".

- The archaeological exhibition "Lastours, 4000 years of history".

- The Geology, Botany, Zoology exhibition "Lastours, worlds to discover".

The Belvedere, an unrivalled panorama:

2 km from the village, it allows busy visitors and people with reduced mobility to have a view of the castles.

New tour :

An original approach to the site through the development of a newly created route: original views of the castles, landscapes, panoramas, old mines, natural cavities or built structures make this way all the more attractive. An obligatory passage in a small cave allows you to appreciate the freshness place. A rediscovery of the site in perspective !!!
