We spent 3 hours exploring the 4 castles. Just 25 minutes' drive from Carcassonne, they offer stunning views, and an invigorating climb. We set out just after 10am, and only saw half a dozen other people - a lovely change from the souvenir shops and...More

More of a slog than i'd expected (although we had chosen a particularly warm day and cunningly started our climb just before midday). We saw some people having to turn round and give up so YES, you need a degree of fitness (or plenty of...More

Was not expecting it when visiting but beautiful scenery throughout. Make sure to take a decent/comfortable pair of shoes. The town itself is very quaint and pretty and the hike up and down was well rewarded with some nice food/beverages from the local cafe/patissier in...More

You park with the car down in the village. You have to pay €7 to hike towards the 4 castles but it's worth it! Beautiful view. Loved it!

An evocative visit to the three castles above Lastours. A fairly easy walk for anyone fit. Great views from the top. Best to start early in summer as it gets hot!
