  • visit alone, in group, family, friends, but A visit a cited case in al asleep Carcassonne which is a memory of what our ancestors with courage and knowledge, build for the future generations, since they would die young and the construction lasted a long time

  • Glare. .. Despite the cobblestones, and the minimalist home of the office of tourism in the city... If we left here. ... tourist office of downstairs gave us the desire to take advantage of this panorama, this noticeable story, and hospitality of the enthusiasts who are eager to share. The pavers are an ordeal, but if it's with an electric scooter, and a good battery or accompanying - many - we get... I saw wheelchairs, and by phone prior to the home of the count's Castle, the spectacular is offered to us! The reception of the Knight, of the County Roger Street, is accessible even more, to live beyond the clichés, this medieval history. .. Passionate history, or families, you will find to talk to shame the shop is on the first floor...

  • It was inspiring to learn all war strategies and how they lives in there. Love the storytelling of the castle.
  • Interesting, lots to see. Hard to pick renovations from original features. Worth a visit.
  • Very cool to walk through the old keep. The restoration is impressive. After the keep, you can then walk around about half of the ramparts.
  • Truly amazing! You can imagine a dragon sitting on top of the tower!
  • Interesting place with excellent views from the ramparts and a shop with some good books on the Cathars, and quality gifts.
