The Festival de la Cite, with shows varied each day during the month of July (4-31). Day 14, coinciding with the French national holiday, is celebrated one of the most spectacular pyrotechnic spectacles which can witness with the show the city in flames. For more information you can visit the city’s tourism web site (in several languages including Spanish): Tourism Office of Carcassonne Foix. Apart from the spectacular nature of his Castle and its location a few kilometres from Andorra, during the months of July and August they celebrate every week a craft market. Its big summer festival is the weekend of 17-19 July, who celebrate the Festival Trad Estiu with various activities.

For more information (only in French): Mairie (Town Hall) of Foix Montsegur. The most magical place for lovers of the history of the Cathars. The last Cathar stronghold, this castle, situated in a spectacular location, near Foix, is celebrating a very special activity each summer, the Aplec dels focs de Sant Joan, which this year celebrated its 31st Edition, the end of week of 20 and 21 June. For reservations or more information: Cercle d agermanament Occitan Catala, above all, in this case, with a view to next year. Throughout the Pays Cathare in general, is full of beautiful, interesting or spectacular places to visit, is safe, can not see everything in a single holiday, therefore I recommend that before starting the trip schedule places to visit on this occasion and, if possible, make reservations for the shows that you want to go. By the way, if you like camping, it is an ideal opportunity to enjoy it, because the whole area is full of good municipal or private campsites and at good prices. To obtain a good information of the sites you can visit the web site of the Association des sites du Pays Cathare, is also in several languages (including English).
