Had no idea what to expect and nearly didn't go. Really glad we did. 13th Century medieval village. You can only drive up so far and then walk a good climbing walk with views that are worth the effort. Beautiful outdoor shrine at the top.

Like a miniature Carcassonne, this medieval village which seen many religious wars is well worth popping in to. Fantastic views over the valley to Mazamet and it's possible to walk there to. Very hilly, so not for the frail!

Tucked away village with lots of character, and without the usual crowds. Worth a detour if travelling nearby
