Very old and the walls have such beautiful tableaus, almost disappearing into the stone. Very peaceful in the middle of the hustle and bustle.

This was one of the prettiest churches in Carcassonne with some beautiful paintwork inside the church. It is not very touristy so you can get some peace and quiet in the church. Loved it!

More of a local kind of church than the great cathedrals nearby or that most people look to visit. Nothing wrong with this church, but we didn't find a lot to recommend it. Still, it's worthwhile sticking your head in while you pass by.

Lovely church on one of the main shopping streets a few hundred metres from the Gare SNCF. The decoration in each chapel is unusual. Well worth popping in if passing.

The carmelite chapel is all that is left thanks to the rigors of the revolution which took the rest of the property. Now a parish church it is known for the central stained glass over the altar.

Discovered this church on way in to the centre of the new town. Very quiet and peaceful with a number of Saint chapels either side of the nave. Each is decorated in a unique way. Well worth a visit.
