Location History
From its rocky outcrop, the castle Quéribus (XI-XIV) commands admiration and invites the imagination. Its strategic location enables it to exert a remarkable oversight on the entire plain Roussillon. During the Crusade against the Albigenses, Cathars Quéribus houses. It is the last bastion to fall to the Crusaders in 1255, eleven years after Montsegur. The castle then returned to the kingdom of France under the reign of St. Louis. He became a cornerstone of the defensive French in 1258, the Treaty of Corbeil. It will lose its strategic focus in 1659 with the Treaty of the Pyrenees, which establishes a border between France and Spain.
