Description

Every year, the Cité de Carcassonne attracts as many visitors as the more famous Mont Saint-Michel. Even if you do not know this city, a visit here will stimulate your imagination. 2.500 years of history and massive fortified walls from the 13th century, watchtowers, city walls and a castle remind of medieval sieges. The museum (included in this ticket) also brings this fascinating story to life.

Entering the Cité de Carcassonne means entering the world of medieval trade and travel - similar to the popular table game Carcassonne

With this ticket you can visit the massive double wall with 52 watchtowers that surrounds the old town and the Count's Castle (Château Comtal). You can also visit the Great Fountain from the 14th century. It is said that the Visigoths, who feared the arrival of Attila the Hun, hid the treasure of the Temple of Solomon inside. It was never recovered, so keep your eyes open for something shiny

The Gauls settled Carcassonne in the 3rd century BC. Then came the Romans, who took power and added a defensive tower. In the Middle Ages a great medieval passageway passed through here, so that merchants, crusaders, wanderers and more passed through the gates. The history contained within these walls is breathtaking.

And yet Napoleon and Co. decided to destroy it in the 19th century. Fortunately, a campaign to save it was successful, and after its restoration, the Cité is rightly listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
