Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997, the city of Carcassonne holds the traces of 2,500 years of history. Its impressive fortifications made it the primary component in the defence system on the border between France and Aragon. From 1851, Eugène Viollet-le-Duc was commissioned to restore its walls and towers. Today, this outstanding ensemble provides a wonderful resource for exploring all the diversity of the Middle Ages and understanding the Medieval imagination.
Activities accompanied by an unaccompanied tour of the Château (museum of lapidary arts, a 3D film “Traces of the City”).
Specially-adapted activities for groups of disabled visitors available on request.
