The photos don't do this magnificent castle justice. The castle is not only massive, in excellent shape with restoration started in the late 1800's, but also contains a small town inside the walls. Plenty of places to eat, drink and be merry as well as shop till you drop. Throw in a beautiful cathedral and an interesting castle museum and you have a full day of exploration.
Within a 20 minute drive of Carcassonne are numerous abandoned castles and abbeys. I was able to visit Saissac Castle, Lastours and the Abbey at St. Hilaire.
This chapel on rue de Verdun is used for city cultural exhibitions. In the Gothic design, contruction began in the 1860.... more travel advice
