Fortresses and castles in Languedoc – Aude
France is known for its many fortresses and castles. In the Aude – Languedoc region, which is where the holiday park is located, there are several fortresses and castles that you can visit. Most of these castles date back to the time of the Cathars, the period during which there was war between the Roman Church and this group. Some castles are still in good condition, others have fallen to ruin but they are still definitely worth a visit. During the summer months there are often medieval festivals in and around the castles and their ruins.
