A trip to the famous French city of Carcassonne, the largest medieval fortified citadel in France. The ramparts, the towers and the gabled roofs create the almost unreal atmosphere of a fairytale city. The magnificent Cathedral remembers the times when Carcassonne was the city of the Cathars, who did not accept the dogma of the Catholic Church. Catharism was declared heresy, the cities and the Cathar castles were destroyed, and all Cathars were burned alive. In the heart of medieval Europe Christian crusades against Christians were carried out. Carcassonne was destroyed by wars and time, but lovingly restored in the 19th century and protected by UNESCO. Now the narrow streets are filled with souvenir shops and restaurants. We can visit the castle of Count Trencavel, stroll along the impressive walls, enjoy the magnificent views of the old town and taste the typical "cassoulet" of Carcassonne.
