Ruined castle at Gruissan, Aude, Languedoc

Castle at Gruissan, Aude, south France

Whats left of the castle at Gruissan, sits on a rough summit of rock, above trees bent by wind, and village houses, with their scattered roof tops.

Gruissan village is now split from the Mediterranean sea, by etangs and sands, and its namesake - Gruissan Plage plays host to sea bathing and surfers and experimenters of man playing with wind water and fun.

Gruissan is a great place to visit with its Firework displays over the summer; its fetes; and its myriad restaurants, shops, and boats in its marina.
