Cathar castles

Midi-Pyrénées, a major centre of Catharism

Are you ready for an unforgettable tour of the Cathar sights? Catharism was a religious movement that began in the early years of the 11th century and was centred on the South of France, particularly Midi-Pyrénées. This region was the main focus of the Cathars. It was also their place of refuge when the Church pursued them all the way to the heights of Montségur.
