Marveling at the picturesque village of Eus perched on a hilltop,
Just above sits the refurbished church surrounded by remnants of stone walls waiting to be rebuilt.
Of course don’t plan on leaving town in a hurry!
Getting there. Between Ille sur Tet and Prades on the N116 turn off at Marquixanes and follow D35 to Eus. Follow the signs to the parking area just below the upper town. Park and walk through the village to the fortress at the top of the town. Past the fortress to the left you will see a small parking lot and a road that goes straight back.
About 200 yards along this road the trail angles off to the left and immediately splits, with a clear sign indicating Comes to the left. Follow the red and yellow blazes. Up and back is about 5 miles with a 1200 foot change in elevation.
