My son actually peed on one of the big German guns about 33 years back when we were on holiday there. He was about 7 at the time :twisted::twisted: It was already quite rusty though :rolleyes:

Montsegur, Aude, Languadoc and the last outpost of the Cathars before the Cathar Perfects were burnt alive because they defied the Catholic church.

And looking down from the chateaux to the village of Montsegur

The history of the capture of the chateaux is absolutely fascinating, and very bloody! How they managed to built it is a mystery to me!

Chateau de Foix and Quéribus, Aude. Both on the old Spain/France border as it used to be in the 1600s

We have been to Château de Quéribus. A weary climb on a hot day and how it was ever bested I have no idea. It was all we could do to stand never mind fight when we got up there!

Thank you Pippan. I chose this pic because of the framing, but I lost a bit of framing when I decided it needed a little tweak for vertical/horizontal correction.:-)
