Minerve is one of the happy few on the "Most Beautiful Villages of France" list. Sitting at the top of a rocky hill and surrounded by deep canyons, the village and the ruins of its castle will mesmerize you! Travel back to Cathar times with your guide, who will recant the village's fascinating history and observe its architecture and geology.
The Classical 1h tour includes a walking tour of the village and its pretty stone houses, the ruins of the castle and its "candela". Then, the outside of the church and the Dove of Minerve- the replica of the ancient trebuchet named "Malvoisine".
The Sporty 1h30 tour includes all of the above, plus your choice between two extras: first option is a walk down the canyon to Saint Rustique well and a short hike up to see the trebuchet and have a stunning view over the village. Second option is a walk down the canyon, under the village (yes!), along the river banks, and through the largest "natural bridge-tunnel" (not possible in the winter, when water level is too high).
At checkout, select the guide you believe will suit you best, or just take a blind pick! Go with Julien for a visual arts focus, Gwen for a history focus, globetrotter Amelie for a cultural focus, or Anna for a more "offbeat" and unusual tour!
