Located above the city of Saint-Lizier, the Palais des Evêques offers a spectacular view of the immense Pyrenees mountains.
Next to the building, be sure not to miss a true gem of the area: the beautiful Notre-Dame-de-la-Sède Cathedral, known as the Sistine Chapel of Ariège, with reference to its monumental paintings. You will be amazed by the cathedral’s Renaissance art, majestically covering all the building’s arches.
Having been an episcopal seat, a prison and even an asylum for the insane, a visit today lets you discover the history of the former province of Couserans through the collections of the Departmental Museum of Ariège.
