In the heart of the city of Carcassonne, discover the château comtal and its ramparts, masterpieces of Gallo-Roman and medieval military architecture, listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1997.

 

A key city in the formation of the national territory. The centre of power of the Counts of Carcassonne and then of the famous Trencavel family in the 12th century, it became, following the Albigensian crusade (1209-1229) when the royal forces seized Carcassonne, accused of complicity with the Cathars, a royal stronghold governed by a seneschal.

 

It guaranteed the border between France and Aragon until the Treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659.

 

One of the largest restoration sites in Europe. In the 19th century, the town was on the verge of demolition and was used as a stone quarry. During more than 50 years (from 1853 to 1911), Viollet-le-Duc and his successor Paul Boeswillwald restore it to its medieval appearance: destruction of the parasitic constructions between the two walls, grey slate roofing of the towers and restoration of the decorations, hourds are undertaken. In the 1960s, the Gallo-Roman towers were topped with tiles.
