Explore the old town in Southern France with this Carcassonne Guided Tour. You'll discover the Cathar past of one of the most beautiful historic towns in the Occitania region.
Carcassonne Guided Tour
The Carcassonne Guided Tour will start at Place du Prado at 12:15 pm.
First of all, we'll walk along the Carcassonne walls. We'll learn about the evolution of this defensive fence over the years, which is now one of the best-preserved citadels in Europe. We'll then go to the intramural area to visit the quarters linked to both the clergy and the nobility.
We'll stop at the foot of the Carcassonne Castle, which you'll be able to visit on your own at the end of the tour. Next to this great bastion, undoubtedly one of the city's great monumental jewels, we'll let our imagination run wild with stories related to feudalism, the Cathars and the Albigensian crusade.
The tour will continue as we learn about the important monumental restoration works that took place in different parts of the city. The work began in the 1900s, with the aim of restoring the medieval splendour of this beautiful city in Occitania.
The tour will end at 1:45 pm by visiting the Saint-Nazaire basilica, a masterpiece of Gothic art where we'll enjoy the great luminosity that penetrates through its colourful stained glass windows.
