View of Carcassonne

The Cité de Carcassonne on the right bank of the Aude is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The medieval fortification is unique in Europe in terms of its size and state of preservation. The Cité is enclosed by a double ring of walls. Inside, the count’s castle (château comtal) was built in 1127. Its walls form a rectangle protected by five towers and a moat.
