Cordes sur Ciel
Cordes sur Ciel translates to “rocky heights” which makes sense as it touches the sky on the ragged Puech de Mordagne ridge. Its breathtaking views and ten centuries of history have inspired authors starting with Albert Camus. Any visitor will fall in love with this authentic town.
Cordes sur Ciel lies alongside a leafy landscape teeming with chestnut and sessile oak trees where the medieval towns stand. Just some of the breathtaking sites you’ll see include half-timbered houses in Puycelsi, the “bastide” of Castelnau-de-Montmiral, Gaillac vineyard, Bruniquel medieval village and Penne’s château ruins.
