Explore the Ruins at Puilaurens, a Medieval Cathar Castle

The ruins of this 12th-century fortified castle are worth a side trip if you're near the coastal city of Perpignan on the Spanish/French border. A short 20-minute hike up from the designated parking lot (or a longer hike from the bottom of the mountain) gets you a look around the castle remains – parts of which are quite well-maintained – plus stunning views of the surrounding Pyrenees. Allot about 1.5 hours for whole thing, and bring a sandwich lunch to enjoy with the views.
