window seat at castle at Villerouge-Termenes, Languedoc

The castle at Villerouge-Termenes, in the Corbières is well worth a visit, with a fine multi-media display of the history of the Cathar religion, particularly Bélibaste, the last known Cathar priest in Languedoc, who was burnt alive here in 1321. This is one of the windows in the castle, with seating to appreciate the view.
