Photos of Saissac, France
Saissac is a small town in the Languedoc region in south central France. The town is famous for the ruins of the
remaining Saissac castle,
which dates back as far perhaps as the year 1000. Like many of the castles throughout the
Languedoc region, the castle was home to
the Cathars, a large religious group that existed in France at that time.
The Cathars were entirely eliminated, many thousands of them
burned at the stake during the Albigensian Crusades
that were ordered by the Catholic church. Individual photos of Saissac can be viewed
