Oh, those castle-builders of Lastours...  They don't half like to wind up unsuspecting archaeologists!

This is my second post devoted to Lastours, and it was supposed to be devoted to the second of the four castles - La Tour Regine.  But I suspect that these photographs are in fact of Quertinheux, and that my last photos.  This is what happens when I take time off to go climbing mountains in the Lake District....

Here's a view of the circular tower with its enclosing curtain wall:-




And a close-up of the tower, showing a very obvious raggle near the doorway:-


And a view inside the curtain wall now, showing the arched recesses which still survive there:-



 And that's it.  I shall be lying low over the weekend, and then I'll be sharing some images of my latest jaunt up north.  Watch this space...
