Assaults of Time

A tour at the Citadel of Carcassonne

Facing such a massive stronghold everyone feels tiny.
Like in New York the site brings you back to a human scale, in size but also in historic perspective.
At the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, surrounded by vineyards, the site leaves speechless. The visit of the remparts will be completed by a guided tour of the castle, and of course a traditional lunch (not included) of the South West in a typical local restaurant.

If you’re interested in History and architecture, the castle of CARCASSONNE would be an essential addition to your visit.

A big classic for shore passengers arriving in Sète for the day or if you stay in Montpellier. If you’re planning few days in the area, Narbonne, Pézenas, the canal du midi, the cathares castles and the many picturesque villages of the region offer an abundance of choice.

Everyone should see Carcassonne at least once in his/her lifetime.
