Medieval fortified village

Included in the "most beautiful villages of France", the "little Carcassonne of the Gers" is a fascinating 13th century medieval village surrounded by ramparts. Protected behind the impressive walls are a dungeon, a church and several pretty houses. Access to the village is a bridge and a fortified gate. At the foot of the fortifications a reconstructed siege camp has working catapults as well as other attack and defense devices from the Middle Ages.
