I want to show you what’s behind our southern horizon.
On the road to Peyrefitte du Razès is a sign for a sentier to Cuercorb. Cuercorb is the name of an area with 14 communities north-west of Aude and Languedoc-Rossillon.
When I’m a couple of hundred meters up the road, I get a peak of the Pyrenées. It’s a warm T-shirt day the 10th of March.
More close up….
Here is the road to the last places where the Cathars were living in the 13th. century when they finally were burned on stakes by the Catholic’s Inquisition. Those few who chose to convert to Catholisism got a yellow star to wear to show and they had to report to the authorities in Pamier every month. From the small places they lived to Pamier it took several days to walk.
Here we can see the last castle, Mont Segur.
At the foothill of Mont Segur is this monoment placed were the Cathers were burned to death. The history tells there were a dark smog in the valley and a very bad smell.
In this valley is the little village Mont Segur
A great feeling to lean into he wall and look down and around the corner.
