A jigsaw puzzle with 1,000 mini-pieces is obviously more difficult and will please puzzle-lovers. The illustration is a photomontage that allows most of the castles in the former Cathar lands to be visualised: Quéribus, Peyrepertuse, Termes, Villerouge-Termenès, Arques, Puivert, Montségur, Foix, Lastours, Minerve and, of course, Carcassonne. Also present are architectural and sculptural elements from Mirepoix and Les Cassès, as are the the great actors in the drama of the Albigensian Crusade: Pope Innocent III, Simon de Montfort, Saint Dominic. The Counts of Toulouse and the southern lords are symbolised by the Occitan Cross. On the bottom of the box, a map shows the locations of the various sites in Cathar lands.
