The Foix Castle
Drive time 30 minutes
Foix is a capital of the Ariège department. One of its most interesting sights is the imposing medieval castle situated on a picturesque rocky hill. Its origins date back to the 7th century, when the strategic value of the site was recognised and the first wooden fortifications were built here. At the turn of the 20th century, the castle was thoroughly restored and opened to the public. In 1930, an archaeological museum was established within its walls, housing a large collection of various artefacts found during restoration work.
