The French city of Carcassonne, situated in the Languedoc region, is widely known as a fortified city on the north bank of the River Aude. All turrets, towers and ramparts, the historic Carcassonne is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and even features its own basilica, the Basilica of St-Nazaire. This is Europe’s largest medieval town and its city walls are still intact after being completely restored by Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in the late 19th century. Carcassonne’s “lower” town, however, has a more modern vibe, with charming streets that play host to entertainers, gift shops, restaurants, tapestry galleries and outdoor cafes.

The Canal du Midi crossed by the Pont Marengo is another tourist draw in the area. The canal, lined by overhanging trees, was constructed in the 1600s, and is popular for bank-side strolls and boat rides.

Carcassonne Travel Information

  • While visiting, make sure to enjoy cassoulet, bouillabaisse, patés and Roquefort. Cassoulet is the region’s specialty, a rich dish of white beans, mutton and duck or partridge.
  • Take a cruise down the Canal du Midi. Boat trips take a couple of hours from Carcassonne canal harbor. Passing through one of the canal’s locks is a highlight.
  • The Raymond Chésa Leisure Park is close to the medieval city. It spreads, for 99 acres, across three valleys, fed by the Mitgé, Bazalac and Montirat creeks. Strolling around Cavayere Lake will reveal a number of environments, from pastures to woods to arid land. An island in the middle of the lake is an important nesting ground for ducks and other birds.
