6. THE ROUTE OF THE CATHAR TREASURE. MONTSÉGUR – PUIGCERDÀ AND THE ROUTE OF VAUBAN (GUIDEBOOK).

The Spiral of Knowledge presents to its readers a brief introductory summary of the recently published guidebook “Montségur – Puigcerdà, por la ruta del tesoro cátaro y el camino de Vauban” published by Publicacions de l’Abadia de Montserrat (Barcelona, 2008) in the collection Guías del Centre Excursionista de Catalunya by courtesy of the authors Lluís Willaert and Josep Nuet. This book goes into the most unknown routes of the medieval Cathar Country, which are not usually explored by the large public interested in the topic of Catharism. It also shows us the route of the fortifications of Vauban in the 17th century.
