Châteaux sightseeing

Midi-Pyrénées, region of a hundred châteaux

The castle at Montségur, the Château de Castelnau-Bretenoux, the fortress in Najac, … the region's one hundred or so châteaux, some warlike and some romantic, give you an insight into Midi-Pyrénées' turbulent history. Relive the epic of Catharism, the ambitions of the lords of Rouergue and the battles of the Hundred Years' War. Follow in the footsteps of Henry IV and Queen Margot, while the children can have a go at using a bow and firing a bombard.
