Must see if visiting Narbonne. This and the Cathedral etc make up a sort of mini Avignon. Most impressive ancient buildings, great views form the Donjon, a lovely morning wander through history.

This is where you buy the Pass Monumental Narbonne ticket. Beautiful architecture and interior and well worth the visit. The only down side is that there are 89 steps to the top floor with no lift for any one with a mobility problem or is handicapped

This huge old fortress has been recycled as the Hotel de Ville where all the usual governmental functions are performed. You can wander around and enjoy the special architecture. Archaeological museum is inside.

I was disappoinmted the Archaeological museum was closed for renovation but there was alot else to see. The highlights for me were the gargoyles surrounding the cloister and the comprehensive orientalist painting exhibition - the best collections of this genre I have seen.

From the Belle Epoque architecture, this could be Paris, but it is Narbonne, Roman capital of Gaul, with the Roman canal still running through the city, one of the few Roman bridges with houses on it and a remnant of Roman road.

The Archbishop's Palace is now the Town Hall complex, part of which currently has an exhibition of paintings by Leon Diaz-Ronda. When we were there the archaelogical museum was closed, so this made up for it a little, and we then went up the staircase into the cloister and cathedral.

We went on heritage open day so expected everything to be open, but in fact the museum (with the Gallo Roman artefacts) was closed - I think they are probably preparing for the opening of the major new museum which is now scheduled for 2020. The rooms of the Palace were of but not really our thing.

Learned about lots of new ( to us ) French and Dutch artists often with a strong connection to the area. The North African picture gallery was very eye opening for us as an unknown area .

WOW this had an impressive collection of art. We just loved that Louis XIIIth stayed here and we looked after a place in Aulnay where he had stayed as well. Love connecting all the parts of history. The ceilings here were incredible and it was well worth the visit. Quite a few stairs to climb to get in and my legs were like jelly after the Donjon tower but it was so worth it. NZ just doesn’t have history like this. Wishing I had taken history at school !!
