Château de Peyrepertuse

Highly recommended
In a breathtaking setting, the long form of the castle is almost camouflaged as it crouches atop the rocky reliefs at close to 800m. Said to be unassailable, the castle is one of the finest examples of fortifications in the Corbières, the largest of the "Five Sons of Carcassonne". "uriously, it was never besieged; even at the most ardent times of Catharism, history seems to have saved this vertiginous citadel, which looks just as impressive today.
