Discover Foix

The charm of Foix lies in its legendary Cathar past. At the mouth of a former glacial valley, Gaston Phébus's hometown suddenly appears, overlooked by its impressive castle. The town, which is not very large, can be explored entirely on foot, wandering through narrow streets lined with beautiful half-timbered houses. Foix is the ideal gateway to explore the Ariège, discover its prehistoric caves, medieval heritage and natural wonders.
