Unfortunately this is the last year that this friendly bookseller, native of Minerva and resident, will offer you access to this beautiful little museum that retraces the Cathar epic in the form of paintings-maquettes with colorful characters. Very poorly highlighted and very poorly referenced (especially by the tourist office), we came across it by chance. Located at the back of a very nice little bookstore, this mini museum was originally created by a couple of winemakers from the region in love with their history, and it's a gem. The owner of the place is a scholar who will answer all your questions and does not stop when it comes to defending the heritage of his region and the true history of the Cathars. The tour will cost you 3.50 euros per adult and is free for under 14s.
fascinating! The lady who works there is very erudite and obviously passionate about history. We particularly enjoyed the visit to the church.
