Место красивое. На против этого здания можно расположиться на лугу и созерцать его и его отражение. Можно помедитировать ) пройти близко к зданию не удастся, т.к. частная территория. По-моему там что-то типа частного учебного заведения. Посозерцали и сделали фото. Возможно стоило устроить на лугу пикничек )

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.
