Carcassonne - Walking around the Cité

Its only when walking around Carcassonne one becomes amazed by the size of the fortifications of this magnificent town. A castle with a prominent position in the Aude valley, the Cité dates back to Roman times, but really came into its own during Medieval times. The best time to visit is on Bastille Day (July 14) when firework display and a son et lumiere bring out all the true glory of the Cité
