  • Lovely acoustic (sang mass in here), and great to get out of the summer heat!
  • Date: 25/08/2016 place to visit: Carcassonne Cathedral the Cathedral of Carcassonne is quite different from what we are accustomed to see, at least on the outside, because inside all tend to be more or less equal. The first thing that catches your attention to see it is that it seems that you are in front of a fortress, with included trench. It has some very interesting gargoyles, especially one that seems to have hair on the head and a thin line of blue color that runs through her entire back, and which in located at the crossing with the street Chartrand. It is a Gargoyle that is average height, meters below all the others.
