The Château de Roquefixade is a ruined castle built on a cliff overlooking the village of Roquefixade, situated 8km (5 miles) west of Lavelanet in the French département of the Ariège.

There are records of a castle on this site going back to AD1180, though the present ruins are more modern. While marketed in the tourist industry as one of the so-called Cathar castles, these ruins are later than this. Despite this, the site did provide a place of refuge for the Cathars at the time of the Albigensian Crusade. ref: wikipedia
