Places to visit in Carcassonne photos and guide

Carcassonne is a medieval city in the Languedoc region of France.

It is about 50 miles from the city of Toulouse and close to the Pyrenees mountain range.

The city is built on the right bank of the river Aude.

It has 2 rings of town walls and 52 towers. The castle ramparts were built in the 12th century.

You can go on guided tours of the walls visit the Lapidary museum.

You can see how the city was restored in the 19th century.

There are two sightseeing trips we liked, a small train takes you round the walls.

The other is a horse drawn carriage ride around the old buildings.You can also go on mini bus day trips at 27 B Rue frederic mistral 11570

Both take about 20 mins and have a audio in several languages to explain what you are seeing.The town has a good choice of restaurants in all price ranges

Carsassonne Walls

In the walled area there is a selection of shops where you can watch craftsmen working.

The city has a Cathedral dating back to the 14th century some parts to the 11th century.

The Museum of Chivalry, Arms and Archery has some interesting exhibits.

The museum of the Middle Ages shows you how to defend or attack a medieval castle.

This map shows you the town and surrounding area


Carcassonne makes a good base to tour the area it is not to far from Spain.

Or the South of France and the Mediterranean coast.

Most of the popular hotel chains have hotels in the area.

There are campsites or you could stay in a Gite just outside the town as we did. That way you can enjoy the local fresh produce and a glass or two of wine. In your own garden or by the pool after a hard days sightseeing

Or try one of the popular Hotels in the town

It is a traditional stone-built house with a terrace and garden above a garage. From this house you can climb a footpath in 2 minutes to the City.

In the other direction, you can walk through trees and parkland to the Aude river, or you can cross the old bridge towards the Bastide Saint Louis with its shops and markets.
