Thank you for your contribution to the preservation of this exceptional site

The Castel of Peyrepertuse has been classified as a  historic monument in 1907. It is the property of the community of Duilhac sous Peyrepertuse (153 residents) who decided to open the site for visits in 1973 after several archaeological campaigns.

Since then, the community invested several million Euros to secure, restaure and preserve this exceptionnel monument so the coming generations will still have a chance to visit it.

The ticket price allows the community to find the budget to invest regularly and also to make live the territory.

For groups, families or friends...

After traveling on the winding and beautiful roads (D14), take the entry of Duilhac and follow the road up to the castle for about 2,5 km. Soon you'll leave the village of Duilhac sous Peyrepertuse while continuing to the Castle of Peyrepertuse

Several parking places are at your disposal at the reception area and shop.

Access by camper van or bus more than 7 meters in length

For those who travel by camper van or bus more than 7 m in length the ascent to the castle is regulated. The road is particularly winding and therefore not adapted for vehicles more than 7 meters in length. You may find yourself stuck!

A parking place for this purpose is at your disposal whose location is indicated by a signboard between the village and the Castle.

From this parking you need to walk about 1km to reach the reception area.

The picturesque village of Duilhac sous Peyrepertuse on the trail "Sentier Cathare GR367" is an interesting halt to do.

There is no doubt, the most specta-cular halts on the trail coming from Tuchan are the village and the castle. Approaching the village, the trail in the wilderness starts leading through vineyards.

Following the signs, the trail leads you through a few welcoming town lanes before you reach the Castle of Peyrepertuse.

Access for persons with reduced mobility ?

The Castle of Peyrepertuse cannot be accessed by persons with reduced mobility. The reception area and shop can be accessed by a ramp. A parking lot for this purpose is nearby.

Don't forget to bring some water and small snacks for the little hunger. In summer bring your sunhat and sunscreen.

What else you should know...

You will need 2 hours for the entire visit, starting from the parking place at the reception area underneath the Castle of Peyrepertuse.
