Time again for Frizztext’s A to Z Challenge – this week it’s P. From my travels, P could be for Painshill Park, Paris, Peyrepertuse, Phaestos, Pisa, Pistyll Rhaeadr, Pitigliano, Poienari castle, Polesden Lacey, Potsdam, Pottenstein, Provence, and umpteen more….. But I shall choose Puilarens.
The ruined Cathar castle of Puilaurens, to be more specific. We went some years ago now, but I was already compromised regarding balance and stamina. The Cathar castles were places I really wanted to see, and not just from a distance. Peyrepertuse I ruled out straight away, on account of the climb up to it, and the extremely uneven terrain….
So Puilaurens it was (and also the Chateaux de Lastours – one of those might make Q!).
The climb to Puilaurens was quite steep, nonetheless, and quite a challenge for me! But what a place! Fabulous structure and wonderful views from the top.
