The Cathars have been used as a tourist attraction, however, between reality and fantasy there is a slight step.
Meter Berlina’s novels relate the Cathars to the search for the Holy Grail and mix literary myth with reality.
Even some castles are post-mythified heretics, except for the castle of Montsegur and Querbús.
Another curious fact is the erroneous attribution of the discoidal stelae, funerary monuments crowned by a disc made of stone, which are distributed throughout Occitania, since, in these discs, there is often a carved cross, a symbol that the Cathars refused because it was the instrument of torture of Jesus Christ, therefore, it could not be Cathar.
The region of Alt Empordà encompasses from the telluric and majestic Cap de Creus, to the Escala for the Costa Brava, passing by the Natural Park of Aiguamolls de l’Empordà and the natural park of Albera in the north. Without forgetting all the small towns, old, with stone alleys. A history that goes from the megalithic era to the Phoenicians, Greeks and Romans through the Middle Ages to the present day, Catalonia has a past with a very long list of towns with a magical tradition.
The town of Llers is considered an important place of witchcraft and thanks to the work of Carles Fages, its witches became popular throughout Catalonia.
We will start the tour in Llers, only 15 km. from Figueres.
In 1924 a book by Carles Fages de Climent was published with illustrations by Dalí “Witchcraft in Catalonia”, showing the popular belief that witches met near La Font de l’Hortal on the road from Llers to Tarradas.
