A city in majesty

deco title1


Perched on its hillside, the medieval town seen from below reveals few of the thousand and one treasures hidden within its fortified walls. The monumental towers framing the drawbridge of the Porte Narbonnaise house a village in its own right, still partly living in the medieval era and full of surprises. The legendary Dame Carcas welcomes you, but it's not she who will lead you through the shops of days gone by. However, her spirit (and the legend you will discover with her) will accompany you to the high walls of the château comtal, hemmed in to the city like an Occitan matryoshka. Its defences rival those of the violent battles. The tumult of war still echoes with shouts and metallic noises. The streets are still paved with medieval cobblestones, and the city's entertainment is reminiscent of the baladins of yesteryear.
