If you can’t make it up to the castle, don’t miss our guided tour at the foot of the Montségur “pog”. In the “champ des brûlés”, a memorial to the Cathar heresy, we’ll immerse you in the fascinating history of the people who lived at the top of this mountain. We’ll also tell you the story of the Faydits knights, the resistance fighters who risked their lives to protect the Cathars for 40 years. During the tour, we’ll show you 3-D images that recreate the castrum (fortified village) where the Cathars lived. You can also relive the 10-month siege by the Crusader army, which ended with the tragic slaughter of 225 people on March 16, 1244. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover the fascinating and tragic history of the Cathars of Montségur. How to get there, where to park the bus? Take the D9 in the direction of Montségur. Stop at the bus park at the foot of Montségur castle. This tour can be combined with another guided tour on request.
