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...
  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.

Les Sources de Salz
 
 
Les Sources de Salz - Sougraigne
 
 
  At Sougraigne on the Domaine de l'Eau Salée, the Sals gushes forth, a salt spring with up to 60g of salt per litre, and which historically has attracted many protagonists: glass makers, jet miners, charcoal burners, woodcutters, shepherds, pedlars and of course, salt smugglers and the customs officers on their heels. La Source Salée, the salt water source at the heart of the Domaine, a source of salmon-pink salt water gives birth to the river Sals. The salinity varies with the seasons. In the time of the unpopular Gabelle (salt tax), this source was the origin of a vigorous salt smuggling activity. In the time of the unpopular Gabelle (salt tax), this source was the origin of a vigorous salt smuggling activity. Customs officers were posted at the site to try to regulate the salt trade. The former guard house close to the source remains as a silent witness to this troubled period....
