Paul Jenner and Christine Smith. 136 pages. 2011.

PAPERBACK:

£8.96

This pocket-size full colour guide covers car tours, walks and picnic in the entire range - France, Spain and Andorra. There are well over 400 kilometres (250 miles) of walks in this guide, the equivalent of a coast-to-coast traverse - one of the 'classics' for all serious walkers. But you don't have to be an expert walker for any of hikes we describe. None of them requires special skills (under summer conditions), and there are short walk suggestions with most of the itineraries).

Perpignan walking and hiking map

Foldable map. 2006. Free distance ruler included.

TOP 25 maps (maps where the code ends in "T") are for places of 'intéresse aux touristes'. They are real walkers' maps with a wide variety of useful information on paths and tracks such as, long distance GR (Grande Randonnée) routes, interesting unsignposted ways along footpaths, cross-country or high mountain skiing routes, hard parts of a hiking trail, restricted zones, huts and mountain refuges. This map comes supplied with a handy distance measuring ruler, specifically printed for use with 1:25 000 scale mapping, which when placed onto the map allows the user to instantly read off point to point distances (as the crow flies) in either miles or kilometres. The reverse shows the more important items from the Top25 map legend.

Walking in the Cathar Region

Alan Mattingly. 208 pages. 2005.

PAPERBACK:

KINDLE EDITION:

£8.93

£8.48

The guide offers 30 walks based on the once strategically important castles that dominate the foothills of the Pyrenees. Each walk has as its focal point a castle or other location associated with Cathar history (mostly the 13th century). Summaries of the historical connections of each location with the Cathar period are given, and together these relate the story of the downfall of the Cathar Church, from the massacre in Béziers in 1209 to the siege at Montségur in 1244, which ended with the burning alive of over 200 believers who refused to renounce their Cathar faith.
