Check out the 320 acre garden and the Musée de la Révolution française inside, which focuses on the French revolution. If not, welcome to one of the most mind-blowing buildings in the country - built in the year 969 on a volcanic plug, get ready for a steep climb to get up there (and no elevators in sight). Located in a gorge above a tributary of the River Dordogne, this entire village is an oft-overlooked gem, and marks a popular spot on pilgrimage routes.

To the west of the town of Foix there's a pretty awesome chateau - the Chateau de Foix - that promises a good half-day trip if you're in the area, say Trip Advisor reviewers.
