Mielenkiintoinen paikka. Todella laaja. Opas kiersi ulkoalueilla, häneltä sai kysellä. Opastettu kierros olisi ollu vielä kivempi. Ehdottomasti käymisen arvoinen!

It was a really nice place to visit. There is a sense of going back into time with the way the people of the area had lived. Places are restored well, and good explanations. In most cases there is information also available in English. There is little multimedia hence it is a great place to experience things using eyes than in virtual reality, or through a directors perception, and child friendly.

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.
