  • Must see. This whole complex is beautiful. We bought the day pass which gave us access to this and several other museums - it was definitely worth it. Climbing up the donjon tower is great too as long as you don't mind stairs and heights.
  • In spring of 2017 it was closed due to repaires/ restorations, but the outside is accesible and very cool.
  • Lovely old building with several good museums (art & archaeology) within. Look on the square outside for the exposed section of the Via Domita Roman road.
  • This whole structure is just wonderful, and we were especially lucky to enjoy a fabulous concert at the Salle des Synodes. When you're in Narbonne, be sure to find out what is going on at the Palais des Archevêques. Also note that there are 7 sites to see within the Palais and around Narbonne. Entry to one is 4 euros; a ticket for entry to them all is much reduced (multi-ticket is valid for 15 days).
  • Stunning.the whole palace is historic
