From the picnic area we could see some strange shapes on the hill, so after eating, we investigated.
When looking at the first sculpture, three things caught my eye:
- moyen age (middle ages)
- croisade (crusade)
Colour me interested!
And here: La tragedie cathare (the cathar tragedy)
Montsegur and 1244
I should have taken pics from the front of those strange 'towers' - as I have found they are a sculpture called 'The Cathar Knights' by Jacques Tissinier:
After leaving the rest area, heading for Carcassonne, we passed a couple of castles.
Next up is the city of Carcassonne, and of course I knocked myself out taking pictures of that marvellous place!
