Home of the only fortified town in Europe still inhabited. The medieval city of Carcassonne has been designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO since 1997. It has 31 towers, an amphitheatre, hotel and a full medieval town inside its fortified walls. You enter the citadel through the main Port Narbonnaise (the entrance nearest the car park) and cross over the now grassy moat.
The Carcassonne Festival is one of the major cultural events in the South of France and is now one of France's largest festivals with nearly 120 shows on offer (Opera, Dance, Theatre, Classical Music, French and international popular music, Modern music), more than 80 of which are free!
From the end of June to August, prestigious artists from various domains will be present on 10 stages, including the Roman Theatre of the Medieval City.
