a beautiful ruin and sanctuary for eagles and other birds

very nice place to visit also with children. The birdshow is very well done and your guide is very motivated and loves the birds. Heartwarming.

about this? It doesn't exist any longer. Nevetheless the castle that used to house it (another Cathar castle) does (although you can't go inside) but due to TRIPADVISORS rubbish support I can neither write a review about it nor tell you that if you are trying to do all the Cathar castles it is worth the walk even though you...

Wasted a journey going here to find the chateau ruins were closed to the public for maintenance. No information about 'Les Aigles", - website unavailable rather than providing closing and possible? reopening dates. Check carefully before visiting. Later visited the excellent Donjon des Aigles at Beaucens instead.

An amazing show in an awesome location. A fantastic experience and an Ariege must do! A chance to get up close to a selection of birds of prey. See them sweep over your head and then soar high through the mountain air. The views and setting is quite magical too.

Awesome! What more could you want, an amazing Falconry display in a ruined castle on top of a mountain!!! Great crowd interaction with the birds being brought up close and personal, great education including getting the crowd to mimic the calls of the birds. Large selection of birds and some of the best displays of birds of prey in flight... More

Access is by road above and behind the talc factory at Luzenac on the road between Tarascon sur Ariege and Ax les Thermes. Before each presentation there is time to walk around to discover the birds of prey on their perches. We were invited to sit on tree stumps as seats whilst the birds were flown between the two falconers... More
