Château de Termes - Termes

The site of Termes includes a charming small village, near two spectacular gorges, and of course, the rests of one of the best known fortresses of the history of the Crusade against the Cathars.
We are not far away from the castles of Villerouge-Termenès and Arques nor from the village and abbey of Lagrasse as well.

The castle of Termes was the administrative center of an important territorial district in XI th -XIII th centuries. The lords of Termes managed a powerful fortified village, under the donjon, and they showed themselves tolerant to the cathar heretics.
Château de Termes - Termes
800 years ago, during the crusade against the cathars, the siege of Termes in 1210 by the army of Simon de Montfort made Termes famous: it was one of the longest sieges of this 20 years long war (1209-1229).
At the end of the XIII° century, the castle was reorganized by the French royal power. From then, Termes was one of the castles wich protected France against spain : The " Five sons of Carcassonne".
  Destroyed by the french authority in 1654, the castle of Termes remained abandoned until the XXth century.

But since 1989, conservative workings are done. The current archaeological excavations wich are now made every year since 2005 allows a beter understanding of the history of the castle. These discoveries as well as the efforts made to improve the comfort of the visit, brings the castle out of the forgetting.

Gorges de Caune-Pont (Gorges de Coynepont) - Termes

The Château de Termes is a ruined castle near the village of Termes in the Aude département of the Languedoc. Built on a promontory it is defended on three sides by deep ravines. The ruins of the castle cover an area of 16.000m². Au bout de 30mn environ, au niveau d’un gué sur le Sou, franchir le ruisseau de Nougairole (signifie planté de noyers). La montée est raide, obliquer à gauche, passer sous le rocher de la Femna Prens. Vue dégagée sur les gorges de « Caune Pont » et la vallée du Sou. Passage délicat dans les rochers. Continuer de monter pour atteindre un éperon rocheux en promontoire : vue plongeante sur le défilé des gorges. Enjamber un passage vertigineux : le rocher de Caune Pont qui surplombe une grotte d’habitat néolithique...

Take the chemin de la Croisette which will take you to the Notre-Dame-de-l’Ere chapel. Follow for about 600 m, before climbing the Buffanel on a small path to the left through the garrigue on the edge of the superb Gorges of the Nielle stream, twisting and turning 100 m below. Walk up along the gorges on a small ridge path, and continue alongside a fenced vineyard...
