Thank you. Yes it is, you still can climb it (although unadvisable when carrying a heavy camera) to access the towers.

They had people bringing in the groceries, and it didn't matter how hard it was.  ::)


But in the end it finished with tears, and the poor old Cathars were mostly all killed off by even more religious intollerance. You know: kill 'em all; God will know His own. And that but a few hundred years ago. Fast-forward to today.

It makes you wonder: the Christian religion is supposed to be about love, charity and forgiveness, yet all it usually brings when people become fanatics is war, hatred and death, even between tribes that have the same basic belief! You could not make it up. God must despair of what's done in His name.

Hi,

Peyrusse has had nothing to do with Cathars. You're probably mistaking it with Peyrepertuse, which looks and sounds a bit similar but is in a completely different region of France.

As far as gods are concerned, I don't believe in any of them. Religious beliefs are a strange thing, which inspired Man some of his most astonishing creations, and some of his most atrocious deeds. Personally, I steer well clear of any such beliefs.

The ruins of the Des Cars Castle's keep in the Limousin region. The very tall chimney conduit that survived is a later addition, from early Renaissance.
