- Carcassonne competes with Mont St Michel for the title of the most visited monument in France The citadel was restored at the end of the 19th century and in 1997 it was added to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites.
- The fortified city has a concentric design having two outer walls with 52 towers and barbicans, designed to prevent attack by siege engines.
- The walls of the city are 1.9 miles (3 km) long.
- The canal port at Carcassonne is one of the busiest, and from here you can hop on a half or whole-day canal trip, or even rent a boat for a week or two. Even a half-day trip is lots of fun – get a picnic together at one of Carcassonne’s épiceries, and flat down the tunnel of plane trees either to the west towards Bram or to the east through Trèbes.
- Wine is everywhere in the Languedoc, but Carcassonne is ideally placed as a jumping-off point into two of the region’s finest wine-growing areas – the Minervois to the north, and the rugged Corbières to the south.
