About Carcassonne

About Carcassonne

Once a small successful town and an abandoned fortress, Carcassonne is now a booming city that stands as a testament to the power of restoration on tourism and local business. Painstakingly renovated in the 19th Century by architect Eugene-Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc, the Old Fortress (now known as the cité) is one of the most iconic sights in France and a jewel of the southern region. Displaying architecture from as early as the 14th Century and with plenty of unique historical sites to explore, the cité is a must for anyone with a keen interest in France’s past.

The climate is common for the south of France, with highs of 29°C in the summer months and lows of 3°C in the winter making it perfect for a summer getaway. The city outside of the Old Fortress is well worth a visit too with more modern attractions, including an Australian park where you can watch kangaroos and camels. With so much to offer, it’s easy to see why Carcassonne is a popular destination for families and couples.
