Trip Planner: Europe / France / Occitanie / Aude / Duilhac-sous-Peyrepertuse / Chateau de Peyrepertuse
Chateau de Peyrepertuse is a ruined fortress and one of the five strategically placed Cathar Castles built along the border between France and Spain. Construction began in the 11th century and continued through the 13th century, taking advantage of a high, defensive crag of rock that overlooks the approach road. Look up at the castle from the road, and you'll find it difficult to distinguish the castle from the surrounding rock. It has been on the French Ministry of Culture's Monuments Historiques list since 1908.

Chateau de Peyrepertuse reviews

This was spectacular - the highlight of our trip. We went with our two young children (just turned 4 and 8 years old), and we all really enjoyed it. The walk up to the chateau was quite manageable..... more »
Long hike to the fortress, but worth every drop of sweat.
A family visiting from Canada, all of us really enjoyed our time climbing up and down this fortress
