What to expect

Discover the château of the Counts of Carcassonne and the ramparts, a UNESCO World Heritage site located at the heart of the fortified city.

Carcassone was the seat of power of the Counts of Carcassonne, and then of the famous Trencavel family in the 12th century. Following the Albigensian Crusade, when the Royal forces seized Carcassonne, accusing it of complicity with the Cathars, it became a Royal fortress governed by a seneschal.

Since the pre-Roman period, a fortified settlement has existed on the hill where Carcassonne now stands. In the course of your visit you'll get to explore this outstanding example of a medieval fortified town: see its massive defenses encircling the castle and the surrounding buildings as you stroll the streets and take in the beauty of the fine Gothic cathedral.
