About the place:
Carcassonne is a medieval fortified town in the south of France. Today it is one of the finest examples of surviving city walls from that era and has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Carcassonne was built during the 12th century when modern-day France was ruled by Henry II. The town’s purpose at this time was to protect southern French lands from attacks by Spain which had recently conquered most regions around the Pyrenees Mountains. The fortifications were designed with high towers and battlements so that defenders could shoot arrows over them without being seen. There are also two castles on either side known as “towers.
It has been well-preserved and is now one of the most popular tourist attractions not just in France, but also in Europe as a whole. There are many things to do within Carcassonne that both adults and children will enjoy, such as visiting museums or attending festivals. In addition to its rich history, there are plenty of food shops and restaurants where you can find delicious local cuisine; after all, this is France we’re talking about. If you come at the right time (particularly during June), there may even be some carnivals going on nearby – make sure to check out these events if you find yourself in France at that time.
