Mortgages for France for a region full of culture and historical interest
For those who prefer to keep their feet firmly on the ground, Languedoc also boasts some of the most beautiful historic villages in France. Medieval circular villages can be found across the whole of the region but particularly surrounding the village of Rázes.
Often situated on hilltops, the Circulades as they are now known, were built in a circular shape for defensive purposes. Originating from the 11th and 12th centuries, the design of the Circulades is also thought to have been influenced by Christian ideology.
Also common in the area are Bastides which are similar in formation to Circulades but make up two settlements instead of one. The new city of Carcassonne is a great place to see an example of one of these medieval structures with the Bastide of St-Louis right at the heart of the city.
