High on a hill stands a fairytale castle
like something a child would draw.
I love it
Its the second we have been.
It didn't disappoint
though the weather could have been kinder
After our initial walk around
a stop for coffee
and then some lunch - apparently my cassoulet is better
we paid to walk the battlements
that too was fun, though a tad scary at times
The French don't seem to worry about health and safety
You need to have a head for heights
and watch out for the pigeons
and ALL the tourists
yes I know we were there too!
Want to see some photos
Here they come ........
|see what I mean about health and safety - kids were running around these!|
Wondering about all those letters earlier on, they come from here, not a great shot but I couldn't fit it all in. They tell the history
Carcassonne new town was pleasant, when I say new, its pretty old too. Check out the links at the start of the post for the history bits. It has a great market on a Saturday, busy, but some amazing produce. Here are some random shots of old buildings etc that we spotted whilst wandering around.
