The Cathar Country, a land of legends. 

The Cathar country is notably known for its numerous perched castles, its medieval abbeys as well as for the city of Carcassonne. Set amidst lush greenery, this region of the Languedoc is an area formerly occupied by the Cathars before they were forcibly removed for heresy. Vineyards, gorges and steep valleys form the backdrop to this medieval architecture.
