I think this cost around six euros. The car park is basically a narrowish slope not too far from the castle. The walk up is a lot easier than for the Cháteau Peyrepertuset and even Puilaurens. It was very windy and so it was quite...More

Go there ! 20 minutes steepish walk to the castle, but the views are phenomenal. HOW did they build it there ?

Queribus is an astonishing feat of construction right atop a high cliff point. Rich Cathar history with superb views for miles. There is a good car park at the bottom of the cliff - this is a steep walk up, but worth it.

We took a trip out to Tautavel to the museum of the 450,000 year old man - which was not really that impressive - and then continued on to Maury and to the chateau de querebus. Well worth the visit. The views from the top...More

This castle is stunning, the ruins stand on a rocky ridge with splendid views all around. The walk up from the car park is relatively short but steep and it is best to wear walking shoes. The day we visited was clear and sunny but...More
