Château de Tramezaygues

Tramezaygues Castle is a castle town since the twelfth century (restored in 1990), built on a rocky site at the confluence of the Neste d'Aure and Rioumajou torrent at the foot of Tramezaïgues peak (2548 meters ). It serves as a border outpost until the Revolution. This castle is one of the last remnants of the Aure valley signal towers or watchtowers, with the tower Cadéac.

The function of this castle is primarily defensive and military, serving in supervision from the top of the tower and contacting other watchtowers in the valley by means of lights. It is probably in prison and in the seventeenth century, became a customs post. After the Revolution, it lost its military significance.
