Paddle surf between mountains and castle of Arenoso with typical local meal

We will enjoy this trip doing Paddle Surf through the calmed waters of a valley situated in the Alto Mijares region (Montanejos). Spend a day surrounded by an spectacular tree mass with species such as Melojo, Valencian oak or yew, as well as the characteristic Mediterranean pine.If you love animals, we must say that during this excursion, we will find large raptors and mammals like the Golden eagle, cabra Montesa, the Roe deer and the Wild cat. But this trip not only has attractions for animal lovers, but also hides buildings and spots of historical-cultural interests such as the Castle of Arenoso or the Viñaza. This last one used to be an old farmhouse formed by agricultural terraces which extend to the marsh. Take the chance to navigate over the village, which flooded during the 70s, Campos de Arenoso. To sum up, the perfect mix between sports, environmental care and historical issues.The castle was won by King James I of Aragón as a reward for Muslims. It was granted to the Lord of Arenoso and his descendants, until it was dismantled by the troops of Juan II of Aragón. Two hundred years later, it was positioned in favour of Enrique IV of Castilla and subsequently suffered several damages during the Carlist war (1833 - 1840) and the Spanish Civil war (1936 - 1939).Now a days, this castle is quite damaged. Two buildings can be clearly seen, with islamic and christian remains. The superior compound is found at the centre of the hill, on top of a rocky platform which have been adapted with masonry to give it a rectagular shape. In this space, we can find a couple of towers; a semicircular one with arrow-holes and a squared tower, made of masonry and ashlar. Walking down the hill there is the second compound, next to the rocky platform. A squared-based tower stands out, this is the one which is best preserved, with battlements with southeastern orientation. There are two cisterns and a curtain wall with battlements too, built in mudwall. Walking towards the fort, as we ascend the promontory, we can observe some remains from the walls and several towers. At the end of the path, the entry gate rose, this was demolished in order to construct the chapel of Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles of the 14th century, located at the side of the hill.

Full day tour to Quéribus, Cucugnan and Peyrepertuse castles. From Carcassonne.

ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Chateau de Queribus, Cucugnan, Aude, OccitanieWe depart in the morning to visit these two amazing ruined castles…. We start with Quéribus Castle, also called citadelle du vertige, which, as it's name suggests will offer you a wonderful view, literally breathtaking. During the Cathar crusade, Queribus served as a shelter to the cathars. This is sometimes regarded as the last cathar stronghold, in a sense it was. After the fall of the chateau of Montsegur in 1244 surviving cathars gathered together in the corbieres in another mountain top stronghold on the border of Aragon (the present border between the Aude and the Pyrenees Orientals department) Queribus is high and isolated, it stands on the top of the highest peak for miles around. From a distance it can be seen on the horizon, sticking up into the sky. We take lunch in the pretty village of Cucugnan. After lunch, take the time to stroll through the medieval streets of this picturesque village and go to the windmill where you will be surrounded by vineyards. According to the old mill at the top of the village, the story goes that The baker of Cucugnan, together with the co-operation of local farmers was master of bread production, using the now abandoned wheat variety known as the Bearded Roussillon.Duration: 4 hoursStop At: Chateau de Peyrepertuse, Duilhac-sous-Peyrepertuse, Aude, Occitanie We then head onto Peyrepertuse Castle, a ruined fortress and one of the Cathar castles. It was associated with the Counts of Barcelona and later the kings of Aragon. The name Peyrepetuse is derived from Peirapertusa, the Occitan word meaning pierced rock. The lower part of the castle was built in a strategic location by the Kings of Aragon in the 11th Century and the higher part by the french King Louis IX later on, after the area was annexed to France. The two castles were linked together by a staircase. The castle lost importance as a strategic castle when the border between France and Spain was moved in 1659, causing the castle to be abandoned. The castle ruins are impressive, set high on a defensive crag. From the approach road it is difficult to see where the rock strops and the castle begins. Duration: 2 hours
