Ab l’alen tir vas me l’aire (I breathe deeply, draw in the air) – Peire Vidal (1175 – 1205)
A hot Friday afternoon spent walking through three unusual castles at Châteaux de Lastours with the La Musers.
The three towers were built in the thirteenth century they were called Cabaret (to the north), Quertinheux and Surdespine (to the south). These are some of the few original Cathar castles left.
Raimon was a poor knight from Carcassonne who owned a portion of the castle Miraval. He was poet, composer and singer. Of Raimon’s works 45 remain, of which 22 have melodies.
