Visit to Roquefixade.

The Chateau de Roquefixade, one of the famous Cathar castles, is perched on a pog high above the village but accessible on foot - with sturdy shoes and a little courage!
Above the chateau after a 5K circuitous hike taking in a chapel well-hidden in caves on the far side of the mountain.
The heat haze was threatening to envelope us!


L'église de Jean-Baptiste de Roquefixade is in the small village of Roquefixade itself well below the chateau and is undergoing painstaking restoration.

    The surrounding countryside is stunning and provides a wealth of photo opportunities.

                             A shaggy inkcap or lawyer's wig I believe!
