Fairly small museum and suitable for those interested in ancient remains.

It was open for a viewing from above only when we visited (door opened from a sidewalk and you may take a peek). There was no staff but it was impressive to see the archeological digging site

They have some interesting ruins here and more are opening to the public this Saturday. Free tour with entrance fee (3 euros per person or completely free with Lisboa Card).

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.
