Carcassonne

Carcassonne is famous for the Cité de Carcassonne, the restored medieval fortress that looks over the city.

We were drawn here for several reasons, one of which was the Kate Mosse novel "Labyrinth". People who love castles will be well satisfied - there are plenty of ramparts to climb over and there is a troupe of wandering minstrels.

Don't leave without having a taste of the local specialty - a duck, pork and white bean casserole.
