Photographer's Note

The Castle of Quéribus.
Having published a photograph last year, the luminosity was poor, for this reason I returned here by a more lenient weather in order to share with you this splendid landscape.

Quéribus is built on a rock piton dominating the Corbieres. Its state of conservation is excellent and allows to appreciate the characteristics of a defensive medieval system. It was the refuge of Cathares and faidits during the Crusade. It is one of five wire of Carcassonne and one of the castles of Corbières.
At the foot of the piton the picturesque village of Cucugnan is located which live today by vine and tourism.
See the few people who surveys the side of the piton, you can compare on the scale of the castle.
Thank you to consult the WS to compare the various luminosities.
