  • Nice small art gallery on Place Gambetta in the main town of Carcassonne. Many paintings "in the style of" Manet, Van Gogh etc and lots of local artists represented. It is free!  more »
  • It is free to visit and I enjoyed wandering round for an hour looking at the paintings, sculptures & ceramics. It was difficult to see some of the paintings up high because of light reflecting on them...  more »
  • Nothing particularly stunning on the walls but a good selection of western art from 17th to 20th century.  more »
