La Bastide St Louis, Carcassonne
(2.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
The gates of La Bastide St Louis were designed to protect the lower town. The military enclosure's walls were built in the 14th century, and four bastions were added at each corner of the town in the 16th century. Stop in the central square to see the Fountain of Neptune, which was added in 1770. Religious buildings, mansions, and gardens ring the square. Our Carcassonne vacation trip planner makes visiting La Bastide St Louis and other Carcassonne attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Carcassonne is composed of two parts, the medieval and the modern"" osease, La Bastide Saint Louis, on the other side of the river. It is an a "neighborhood" of straight, narrow streets and many shops. Two seats, a more cozy (Carnot) and one larger and diaphanous (Gambetta), an art museum. The city is fortified by some walls that are still standing and is a complement to the visit to the Cité.
