If you’ve come to Carcassonne to discover its medieval atmosphere, then the Cité médiévale is the ideal place to stay!

Perched on the top of a hill and surrounded by ramparts, this historic quarter is a concentration of major buildings rich in history. Its narrow cobbled streets and stone houses, sometimes covered in ivy, will make your heart skip a beat!

It has 52 towers, two protective walls and two main gates (the Porte de Narbonne and the Porte de l’Aude). You can stroll through it day and night in complete peace, and of course admission is free!

There are some very good restaurants there, most of them serving good local produce, and small bars with views of the ramparts and the Comtal castle are also very pleasant at the end of the day.
