This part of France is known as 'Le Pays Cathare'. The Cathars date back to the 13th century and it is their architectural legacy that dominates this part of France, in the form of fortified hilltop castles and abbeys. The area is also known for its pretty villages, vineyards, abundant produce and beautiful countryside. There is also, of course, a fierce pride in the local gastronomy, which makes for some excellent produce, markets and restaurants.
