Visit Carcassonne

The medieval village of Carcassonne is a must see on your Canal du Midi trip.

Perched on a rocky hilltop and bristling with zigzag battlements, stout walls and spiky turrets, the fortified city of Carcassonne looks like something out of a children’s storybook when it’s seen from afar. A Unesco World Heritage Site since 1997, it’s most people’s idea of the perfect medieval castle.

La Cité, as the old walled town is now known, attracts over four million visitors every year.  An excursion to this fascinating village is included in many itineraries.
