Cathar Country, name given to the Corbières region, in the department of the Aude, in reference to Catharism, is today one of the most important tourist destinations of the Languedoc Roussillon. There are indeed many Cathar castles, perched on the mountain tops of the Corbières mountain range, and wonderful medieval villages in the depths of the valleys.
The village of Minerve, at an hour and a half drive from Argelès sur Mer, is one of the best examples. Classified amongst the most beautiful villages of France, every year many curious people are strolling through its narrow streets.
