Château d’Arques - Arques

In the heart of the village stands the birthplace of Déodat Roché (1877-1978), the historian of Catharism.

To commemorate the village's illustrious son, the house today contains a permanent exhibition devoted to Catharism.
Château d’Arques - Arques
It offers visitors 4 approaches to this religion that go beyond the purely religious:
first, a historical approach;
second, a spiritual approach;
third a political approach; finally an approach devoted to everyday life among the Cathars.

On the first floor a sound recording enables visitors to find out about Déodat Roché's life...
  Specialities

The settlement of Arques is located about fifty kilometres south-east of Carcassonne.

Its castle, standing on an isolated mound, consists of a rectangular bailey with a Gothic gateway and an elegant keep that rises to a height of 24 metres, flanked by four turrets.

After looking at the castle, you may continue your tour with a visit to the centre of the village, where the Cathar Museum, known as the house of Déodat Roché, pays homage to one of the earliest historians of Catharism.....

Deodat Roche, founder of the Cahiers d'Etudes Cathares and a twentieth-century magistrate of Limoux and Carcassonne who was removed from his position by the Vichy government for his interest in religion and spirituality, wanted to lay bare to his contemporaries the light which the Cathars had tried to reveal to the medieval world. A self-proclaimed neo-Cathar, Roche believed deeply in the need to uncover the true history of the Cathars, which had been obscured by an intolerant medieval Church. His house is the location for a permanent exhibition devoted to Catharism and its interpretations.

Gorges

Gorges de Pierre Lys - Saint-Martin-Lys

South-west of Quillan the River Aude and its tributaries have carved magnificent ravines and gorges in the landscape, and over the course of thousands of years have created the fine limestone cliff scenery that we enjoy today. Among the highlights, the road heading south from Quillan to Axat (the D117) passes through the deep Gorges de Pierre-Lys, with cliffs either side of the road stretching to 700 metres in height. From Quillan to Axat; Impressive passage between the cliffs. The "Trou du Curé" recalls the memory of Father Armand Felix, vicar of St Martin Lys, who drilled with the help of his parishioners the first tunnel, a dozen yards long, in the 18th century....
