Roquefixade

Roquefixade is a very tiny but nice village, with a wide square and a church with a bell gable. The XI century castle has steep walls and a tower looming over the village. During the crusade the castle was allied with the counts of Toulouse and Foix, being dependent on them. It became a royal property afterwards and it was restored and renewed. The ruins visible today date back to that period. The castle was then given back to the counts of Foix. It lost its defensive function in the XVII century and it finally decayed after the Revolution. Documents have mentioned the village since the XIII century, but it is likely that it existed even earlier and that it housed numerous Catharists.
