The Cité de Carcassonne is the fortified core of the famous walled city of Gallo-Roman origin in southern France. It consists of double defensive walls punctuated by 52 watchtowers, a castle with a museum, a Gothic cathedral, and impressive historic buildings within the enclosure. It's also the inspiration for the beloved table game Carcassonne. It's been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1997.

We loved it. Easy to get around and everyone very friendly. But one thing is the yellow should be taken off. Ruins the the heritage look.

Cité de Carcassonne - Visit the Castle and the Ramparts
The castle is great all in all. The instructions on how to navigate the inner chambers are not very clear. It would be great if it is numbered carefully so that you do get to see everything. I missed some spot.
Also, modern art and history is very hard to crack but these yellows rings installation is clearly NOT the example! Please remove it. imIt euins the castle’s aesthetics!

An unique experience. It is the largest medieval castle I have seen, with imposing fortifications and views of the surrounding valleys that cut off your breath
