Journey with us to the lovely Provence & Languedoc seeking Mary Magdalene. Provence has an amazing historical connection with Mary Magdelene. We will visit St. Maximin la Ste Baume (said to be final resting place of Mary Magdalene) as well as Grotto of Marie Madeleine in the mountain & Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer on the Mediterranean (alleged landing site of Mary Magdalene & venerated by Gypsies)

Also visit to other areas in Languedoc associated with Mary Magdalene and the Cathars. Languedoc is one of the most varied areas in France. Towering mountains, deep gorges, forests & caves, wild remote plateaus as well as the Mediterranean Sea. This predominately rural area also has a very rich history - castles, cathedrals, museums and so much more. The area is also rich in a variety of vineyards and wines. Mountains frame both ends of the region - the Cevennes in the northeast & the Pyrenees in the south. Jagged ridges, deep river canyons and rocky limestone plateau (with vast caves beneath) make it one of the most scenic.

Another main feature of this area is the havoc caused by religious and political conflicts over the centuries. The ruined castles which cling precariously to hilltops played a leading role in the struggles between Cathars & Catholics at the beginning of the 13th century. Others guarded the volatile border with Spain. Whole communities were wiped out during the merciless campaigns to rid the area of the Cathar ‘heretics’ and later when Protestants fought for religious freedom.

  • Montsegur Castle - the most incredible Cathar Castle there is - ruined castle on 1000 foot crag. This castle provided refuge for over 200 Cathars in 1244 during the Albigensian Crusade until they were martyred on a burning pyre after they descended. Speculation has contined as to whether Cathar treasure is hidden on the site!

Time to visit Chapelle Notre Dame (home to the Black Madonna and her ability to perform miracles), the Grand Escalier (200+ steps, once climbed by pilgrims on their knees), and L'Hospitalet, with its views of the old town

  • Village of Saint-Cirq Lapopie - perched on a cliff 100 m (330 ft) above the river and is one of the major beauty spots of the Lot valley. Many of the historic houses have stone or half-timbered fronts going back to the 13th-16th centuries.

  • Pech Merle Cave - some of the finest prehistoric cave paintings in South West France - The walls of seven of the chambers at Pech Merle have fresh, life-like images of a woolly mammoth, spotted horses, solid colored horses, bovids, reindeer, handprints, and some humans. Footprints of children preserved in what was once clay are more than half a mile underground. The cave at Pech Merle is more than 1.5 miles long. The lower part of the network, where the prehistoric galleries are situated, was discovered in 1922 and opened to the public five years later. The paintings cover 300m (984ft) of wall, with about 700 animals, symbols and anthropomorphic figures depicted.

Who Are These Tours Designed For?
These tours are designed for women as well as men; young or not so young; people interested in the mystery and sacredness of life, with a desire to know and understand more of where we've come from to assist us in where we are going and making a difference on the planet. We also explore a lot of newly discovered/released information that you may not have heard before. If you have a curiosity about mythology, sacred sites, other cultures, and a sense of adventure and want to travel with like-minded people in small intimate groups with a nice balance of workshop time, site time as well as free, independent time, these tours are designed for you. They are not your ordinary, large group tours, being herded into buses with little time to experience the energy of the site. We allow special extra time at sacred sites and there is always the option of being with the group or being on your own.
