The Château de Roquefixade is a ruined Cathar castle built
on a cliff overlooking the village of Roquefixade. It lies 8km (5
miles) west of Lavelanet in the département of Ariège
in Southern France.
There are records of a castle on the site going back to 1180, though
the present ruins are more recent. A castle on this site provided
refuge for Cathars at the time of the Cathar wars (Albigensian Crusade).
The Château de Roquefixade has been listed as a Historical
Monument (monument historique) by the French Ministry of Culture
since 1995. It is open to the public.
