Carcassonne in Aude, Languedoc Roussillon, France

Carcassonne is at the crossing of two major traffic routes used since Antiquity: from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean and from the Massif Central to Spain.
In 1996, Unesco added the Canal du Midi to its list of "World Heritage" sites. In 1997, the Cite de Carcassonne in turn was awarded this distinction.

The town is divided into two, quite separate parts. The Cite occupies a plateau on the right bank of the Aude. The Bastide Saint-Louis lies on the left bank.

The old district of la Trivalle and the famous Old Bridge have been, from that time, the links between their two destinies.

Carcassonne has inherited 2,000 years of history and invites you to discover its heritage of fine monuments.
