Château de Lastours
A hotspot for wine tourism today, the immense territory of Lastours was already a land of stopover in the heart of the Corbières at the dawn of the first millennium.
Garrisons were stationed there and a fortress watched over the rural roads joining the Domitian way. In order to welcome the traveler, a castrum was then built. Its name, Castrum de Turribus, has become over time the Château de Lastours, referring to the watchtowers which overlooked the Domitian way at this particularly dangerous place. From the 13th century to the Revolution, these lands of polyculture (timber, cattle, cereals, vines) subservient to the viscounts of Narbonne only knew three families of owners, rich lords who lived very comfortably in the castle.
