cArcassonne

Carcassonne is a small town located in the region of Occitanie in the south of France. The Cité of the ancient town is a UNESCO world heritage site and so is the Canal du Midi that runs through it.

Carcassonne is located halfway between of the Toulouse and Montpellier and boasts a lovely summer climate. Simply by strolling through the streets, you will be amazed by the beauty and heritage that the town has to offer.

  • Did you know that the walls of Carcassonne are three kilometers long and there are 52 medieval towers dotted around the town!

 TO SEE AND DO IN THE CITY 

  • The Medieval City: Situated on the right bank of the Aude, the Medieval City is a fortified city unlike any other in Europe due to its size and impressive works of preservation. It really is a must-see if you are in the area.
  • Canal du Midi: The Canal was the work of engineer Pierre-Paul Riquet in the 17th century. Whilst previously used to transport goods and people between the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, the Canal is today frequented by numerous boaters and tourists.

  • Bastide Saint Louis: Located on the left bank of the Aude, the Bastide was built during the reign of Saint Louis in 1260 on a rectangular plan laid out around the central square, now the Place Carnot. Nowadays the Bastide has retained its chequerboard arrangement of streets and boasts a remarkable architectural heritage.
  • Musuems: Carcassonne is home to a wide range of museums to cater for all interests. There is the Musée des Beaux Arts, the Maison de la Chevalerie and the Atelier du Livre among others.
  • Vineyards: Carcassonne is in the heart of the French wine country so it would be a shame to miss out on visiting a local vineyard. There are plenty of wine trails so be sure to check one out!
