Wellpreserved medieval castle dating back to Roman times. Wonderful cathedral , restaurants, shops and entertainment. Wonder the streets and experience a fully interactive community living inside the city walls.

This is a beautiful castle with lovely views and plenty to look at whilst walking around. We visited when the target art installation was displayed which was really cool. Great for whole family to walk around.

A honey pot location drawing visitors from far and wide. We spent three hours wandering the ramparts and narrow streets that are peppered with bars and eateries. The volume of tat tourist goods spoilt it somewhat and the confusing “art” of yellow concentric circles had...More

A visit to Carcassonne would not be complete without a visit to the castle and ramparts of the medieval cite.
