Carcassonne is an exceptionally well-preserved fortified city of rare beauty. Visitors can easily imagine the life at the time of its apogee.
Situated in the south of France, near the Mediterranean Sea, Carcassonne is known worldwide and is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage site.
This rocky peak has been inhabited since the 4th century BCE. The town has been protected by ramparts since the 3rd century. First a Gallic city and then a Roman one, it became in the 13th century the impregnable fortress that it is today. This master-piece of military architecture is both remarkable and well-preserved. The chateau, ramparts, basilica of Saint Nazaire, homes and narrow paved streets make a stroll through the city a pleasant one for visitors.
They are more and more numerous each year, coming to visit this exceptional site. The town is particularly beautiful during the annual fireworks during which the talented pyrotechnicians of France offer this sound and light show.
