  1. History of the castle
  2. Photo Gallery

It is modern bridge which the Aude that spans should be discovered the city of Carcassonne. And if possible when the setting sun dyes therosy one with the gilded reflections its at the same time elegant and complex geometry. It cuts out then on the sky languedocian, as these unreal cities which one believed to exist only on Gothic enluminures, or in the iridescent distances of the tables the Primitive ones. Miraculeusement saved of the attacks of time, and rescapée - of accuracy! - stupidity of the men, it remains the most formidable strengthened unit which can be still seen in old Europe. A true stone anthology: throughout its three kilometers of ramparts, through its forty turns, of its two monumental doors, its weepholes, its castle provided itself with nine turns and an outer door, in the erudite labyrinth of its notched covered ways, of its staircases, baffles and posterns, of courtines in ditches, bretèches in watch towers, is read with open book all the military architecture of the Middle Ages.
