LA CITÉ DES PIERRES VIVANTES

The night show of the Château Comtal

It emerges, majestic, powerful, in its thousand-year-old adornment, so fascinating.

Carcassonne. It wasn't always like that.

But one day a man fell under the charm of this city. In the mineral bowels of the city, he felt a heart beat.

From dream investigations, from magical images to the enchantment of a sound and light promenade, discover one of the wonders of the Middle Ages and fall under the spell of the City of Living Stones.

 Discover a magnificent video mapping show at nightfall on the front of the Barbacane that tells how the city was renovated by the architect Viollet-Le-Duc. 

Then get into the castle tranformed by sound and light effects thanks to the newest technologies. 

End by a walk on the ramparts that offer a beautiful view over the city.

In the heart of Château Comtal

THE LARGEST FORTIFIED ENCLOSURE IN FRANCE LISTED AS A UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE SINCE 1997

Occupied since the 6th century BC, Carcassonne was a Roman city, fortified in the 4th century, before becoming the typical medieval city that we know. In the 13th century, the royal authorities provided the town with a second line of ramparts, enlarged the castle and surrounded it with an enclosure.

Restored by Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century, the city bears witness to 1,000 years of military architecture and 2,500 years of history. Travel back in time by walking the pathways, the hoardings and the ramparts.
