The guided tour of Lastours is a captivating outing. Located on the first foothills of the Black Mountain, the peaceful little village of Lastours has an exceptional site.
Perched on a rocky outcrop, the four castles proudly dominate the Orbiel Valley. It takes 30 minutes walk to get to the castles but then… Cabaret, Tour Regine, Surdespine and Quertineux four castles awaits you . This site was a high place of catharism, witness of the Crusade against Cathar. Redesigned in the 13th century to defend the royal power of Capetian dynasty. The four towers stand proudly on the high ground with spectacular views of the surrounding area.
The guided tour of Lastours can also include the discovery of the medieval castrum, which allows us to understand the daily life of the time.
This site in the middle of nature is a perfect illustration of local history.
