9781852844868: The Cathar Way: A walker's guide to the Sentier Cathare (Cicerone Guides)

The Cathar Way - the Sentier Cathare - is a popular, well-waymarked trail which links several of the world-famous 'Cathar castles' of south-west France.
A challenging, fascinating and rewarding route, it is not an arduous mountain trek. The trail runs for about 250 kilometres, from the Mediterranean coast, westward to the historic town of Foix. It can be walked in two weeks or less by anyone who is well-equipped and moderately fit. Good-quality accommodation is available at regular intervals along the entire length of the trail.

The trail traverses the dramatic foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, a beautiful countryside which enjoys plenty of sunshine and which is rich in wildlife.

The highlights of the Cathar Way are the 'castles in the sky' like Quéribus, Peyrepertuse and Montségur. These incredible medieval fortifications will forever be associated with the ill-fated Cathar 'heresy', which was brutally suppressed in the thirteenth century.

About the Author:

Cut Alan Hinkes in half and you will find 'Mountain Climber' written there; it is his way of life. From an early age in Yorkshire he felt a deep attraction to hilly landscapes, which soon developed into a fascination with mountains and rock climbing. His first summit was Helvellyn in the English Lake District, and he soon progressed to climbing in Scotland and the Alps.

Review:

This handy guide has clear instructions for the stages of the trail along with points of interest, maps and an accommodation listing. In keeping with Cicerone's walking series, the guide is well laid out with colour photographs and an easily digestible insight into the history of the area. Indispensible for walkers visiting the area. Rating 9/10. France Magazine, August 2006
