Place Centrale at Mirepoix is the perfect place for jazz

Whether flying into Carcassonne or Toulouse - take a trip to Mirepoix, with its colorful medieval square, in the 13th century Bastide. If you are lucky catch a festival such as this jazz festival; or the Medieval festival held in Summer (July 19-22,2002) and Marionette festival (August 1 - 4, 2002). The countryside around is breathtaking with lots of walks, villages, fortified churches to discover. If coming from Carcassonne, come via Limoux (sparkling white wine, medieval market place, carnival) and Chalarbre (great views); or the quicker way via Fanjeaux.
