Gorges de Pierre Lys - Axat/Quillan

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....
  Aude - D 117

Through the Gorges de Pierre Lys and Gorges de Saint Georges, 12 km of fast-flowing river offers you an ideal place for a wide range of activities such as rafting, kayaking, canoeing, riverboarding and tubing!

This is a rafting course like no other in the Pyrenees. Memorable rapids such as the "Triple Chute", the "Flippeurs" and the "Dessert" have made this stretch famous. The river is navigable every day from the beginning of May until the end of August (natural streams and waterfalls).

At the end of the gorges, the Aude quietens down and from Quillan to Limoux, there is 25 km of calm water, ideal for canoeing or kayaking.

Château de Puilaurens

Château de Puilaurens - Lapradelle-Puilaurens

The castle of Puilaurens (also written Puylaurens) is mentioned for the first time early in the XIIIth century. It was a shelter for cathar people from 1241 to 1246. The date of its surrender to the royal troops is not known precisely, probably around 1250. As several other castles around, it was integrated by the King Saint Louis in the defensive plan of the border with the Aragon Kingdom. After the treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659, that has fixed definitively the border, the castle was downgraded and have been occupied by only a little garrison. This castle is located at an altitude of almost 700 metres and overlooks the village of Lapradelle, in the midst of a pine forest.  Access is via a pathway with chicanes preceded by a barbican...
