Assuming you're on holiday and not in a hurry, it's possible to experience a natural phenomenon very close to the Cathar castle of Montségur. Over the past few years a picnic area and a nice cafe have appeared next to the cave and the Fontaine de Fontestorbes.
Water will swell from a trickle to a mighty gush and slowly go back to a trickle. For all the people who don't have the time to wait for a recurring phenomenon to happen there is a cafe and a playground, with ropes in the trees and a beautiful picnic area.
When the water is low, it's easy to use the stepping stones to go to the back of the cave and wonder why the water is behaving like it is. Even in summer the water is rather cold (which might be a welcome refreshment) and the railing doesn't invoke much trust either. It's a tiny adventure, and well worth seeing.
