The Path of the Cathars was of XI th at the XVI th, an important economic axis between the County of Foix and Catalonia. Last Cathars into exile, fleeing prison, theft and death, used naturally this way to seek refuge in Catalonia. Following this cross-border route, you go through the same paths and discover the same landscapes that these men and women pursued by the Inquisition.

Arranged jointly by the Ariege and Catalonia, the GR No. 107, marked in red and white colours, connects Foix to the small Spanish town of Berga in a dozen days. The French side who share Foix, provides 8 steps with accommodation (refuge or gite d'etape) to Roquefixade, Montsegur, Comus, the Chioula, Orlu, Mérens, L'Hospitalet-près-l'Andorre and Porta.
After Porta, the road crosses the border to White Porteille located at 2500 m height which marks the boundary between France, Spain and Andorra. The tent becomes necessary, the accommodation is too far .
The Spanish part of the trail passes by Bellver de Cerdanya, Baga, Gisclareny, Gosol, Casanova and Queralt, Berga.
