Photographer's Note

another one I dug up from that trip to Carcassonne and environs...

---

ENGLISH VERSION

Carcassonne is famous for its magnificent fortified town (cit), which is the largest in Europe. Its history goes back to Roman times and during the 13th century it was one of the major Cathar strongholds of the area.

The fortress town, which was thoroughly restored in 1853 by the romantic theorist and architect Eug鈩e Viollet-le-Duc, was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.

This was the view from our room.

Note those Languedoc flags on the house across.
