Castle of Foix

Author 'Fifie34' (Id 212961 ) : Built on a spur natural carved by the river ariège, the castle of the counts of Foix, built in the Eleventh and Twelfth century, dominates the city. In the Thirteenth century it suffered the fury of the crusaders during the albigensian crusade, without that he is never taken by Simon de Montfort. It is also during this century that the count of Foix unites with the Béarne which will become the permanent residence of the counts.
The round tower, later, the Fifteenth testament to the power of the 'Princes of the Pyrenees' The last of these, Henri of Navarre, will anchor its lands to the kingdom of France by becoming the good king Henri IV.
The citadel of Foix owes its survival to the fact of being transformed into a garrison, then in prison, until the Nineteenth century, during which it will become a historical monument.
Today the emblem of the capital of the Ariège, it hosts 100. 000 visitors per year. That's it for the history !

Very good framing. The castle is very well on the bottom of the mountain. Beautiful light, which gives relief to the three high-rise towers. Stay tuned for more photos. Marcel.

Building majestic in a sumptuous !
Our nobility had good taste and a good defense strategy for them, leaving the village in front of us on the front...
