Things to do in  Carcassonne

Welcome to Carcassonne

The jagged contours, crenelated city walls, grey slate turrets, and burly watchtowers of Carcassonne’s medieval hilltop citadel—a UNESCO World Heritage Site—are just as impressive up close as from afar. More than four million visitors arrive each year to walk the ramparts, visit the Château Comtal, and dive into the warren of cobbled lanes, museums, and monuments within the Cité Médiévale. A half-day visit is enough to cover the top things to do in Carcassonne, leaving time to visit the nearby Lastours Châteaux and Canal du Midi, or sample some local wines.
