Small signboard but word-it. Just like office command from underground world.

Good tourist attraction which includes a guided tour with some stories. More explanations in english would help.

An interesting museum about the siege undertook by the city during the war. Everything is mostly in russian with little infirmation translated to english. Pictures, models and artifacts are worth the entrance fee, alrhough it would have been alot better to have the text in english to understand more about the significance of every piece

Cháteau Comtal

The Château Comtal (Count’s Castle) is a medieval castle within the Cité of Carcassonne, the largest city in Europe with its city walls still intact. The Château Comtal has a strong claim to be called a 'Cathar Castle'. When the Catholic Crusader army arrived in 1209 they first attacked Raymond-Roger Trencavel's castrum at Bèziers and then moved on to his main stronghold at Carcassonne.

The castle with rectangular shape is separated from the city by a deep ditch and defended by two barbicans. There are six towers curtain walls.

The castle was restored in 1853 by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.
