  • Beautiful Cathedral which fortunately are reforming, you do need it. Hopefully they conditioned him to respecting its history and its origin. You should visit.

  • Carcassonne Cathedral is in the new part of the city, not in the old, as one might assume. The building was built in the 13th century. Then subjected to destruction. This town to build the temple is almost over. I have had him more protection and give extra protection. Therefore, the Cathedral looks like a medieval castle.
