Carcassonne, UNESCO World Heritage Site

Carcassonne awaits you on its thousand-year-old promontory. The medieval Cité, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, will tell you the tale of this transit territory, marked by the Cathar tragedy and the building of some exceptional fortresses: the renowned citadelles du vertige (vertigo citadels), a legacy of the French occupation of the Aude department.
