“Quirky Natural Phenomenon”

Fontaine de Fontestorbes
Reviewed 27 February 2013

Interesting natural water phenomenon, but unless you're lucky, you need to be prepared for a little wait - 60-90 mins for it to happen and be sure to visit at the correct time of year!
Worth the stop - not far from other major attractions so plan a little itinery around it.

There is now a cafe at the zip lining park across the road (busy road, near corner, care crossing it) so that's ideal for getting a refreshment while waiting except don't miss it happening!
Oh and don't get caught in the cave bit when it starts to gush, as happended to us the first time we came across this litte quirky gem :)

Situated next to a quiet road is this phenomenon. There are information boards showing how it all works (a little bit too complicated for me, I must admit). The rotations take between 60 and 90 minutes, although I think it took less time when I was there (late July). It's also quite near a "big" regional road, so if you're passing through the area, its definitely worth visiting.

Fontaine de Fontestorbes was a great place to stop near Montségur. There is parking here, you can have a look in the cave. There are picnic facilities, tourist information kiosk and a snack shop.
