Photographer's Note

This summer we visited the castle Peyrepetuse in the Languedoc-Roussillion region of France.

The castle lies on a 730 meter high rock and when the weather is clear you can see the Mediterranean Sea from it.

The castle is first mentioned in 1050. During its existence it has had its share of warfare. It was involved in the Crusades and the Inquisition because of its occupancy by cathars.

Also its position on the border of medieval France and the kingdom of Aragon (present day Spain) contributed to a lot of bloodshed.

It's a large castle spread out over a rocky ridge at the feet of the Pyrenees.

When we were there, we visited a Medieval Festival taking place in and around the castle. You can see the crowd in the lower right corner of the picture.
