To come to Montségur is to make a pilgrimage to the sources of the history of the Cathar rebellion. It became the seat and head of the Cathar Church, where the reprobates of the new religion took refuge. It witnessed the crushing of the last lights of the new faith. At the end of the siege of 1244, when they surrendered, the Perfect Ones who refused to renounce their faith were burnt alive at the stake. Although the Cathar village and outer fortifications were razed to the ground, the myth and legends surrounding the Cathar treasure remain… At the foot of the emblematic pog, the village of Montségur has been awarded the ” Grand site Occitanie” label and is currently part of the “Opération Grand Site de France” program.
