We were married in St. Peter's today. The church is beautiful, historic and well maintained. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Paster and his daughter two of the friendliest people we could ask for to perform our ceremony. The Paster took the time to speak slower than normal (for my benefit) due to German is my second language and my wife's first. Thank you and may God be with you both.

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.
