Photographer's Note

Short intrusion in Ariège in Midi-Pyrenees area; it is the limit of Corbières.

Mntsegur castle:
It is in this place where the Cathare epopee ended in a tragic holocaust during the winter 1243-1244. You will then have a thought for these 220 Cathares who not wanting to disavow their faith, chose to die and assemble themselves into the fire down the rock, one March 16 1244.
