Getting to Carcassonne by train or bus

by cyberdith

How do I get to Carcassonne by Train or bus if I'm traveling from Barcelona, Spain? What do you recommend to take to get there?
I'm arriving to Barcelona in July 2009 and from there I want to visit Carcassonne but I'm having troubles finding how to get there.

Any help will be appreciated.

Look at http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml for train times and details in English (the easiest site to use, imo, and which carries timetables and details for almost all European trains).

Then look at http://www.renfe.es/horarios/english/index.html (the Spanish railway site) for times and (possibly) fares. www.sncf.com is the French railway site.

Journey time is 5+ hours. You can get a train with only one change ( 08:00 and 16:42, change at Narbonne), otherwise you will need to change twice.

Thanks for the links! I'll check them out.
What do you recommend as next stop after getting to Carcassonne, going to Montpellier or Lyon?

Thank you!

Aha....I've been to neither so I really can't advise, I'm afraid.

I do recommend a trip to Narbonne though, if you can manage it (maybe allow yourself a few hours there then get the train to Carcassonne?). The cathedral and the horarium in particular are well worth a visit (see my Narbonne/Carcassonnne pages).

Toulouse! An easy journey from Carcassonne and no back-tracking.

Hello there,
I checked http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml but got lost as there are many stations called Barcelona and I'm not sure which one to choose or go to. I'm getting off a cruise and will need to head to the train station from there but, not sure where to head to. The train direction I suppose is to Narbonne, correct?
Any advise will be appreciated.

Thanks!

Barcelona Sants is the main station. If you have to get to another station bahn.de will show you the connection....but you don't. Trains to Narbonne leave from Sants.

To double-check which station is correct to put in the journey in reverse order, e.g. starting from Narbonne. Where the train arrives is generally where it will leave from.

The train may be going further than Narbonne, so don't let the lack of 'Narbonne' on the front throw you! Check the platform signage.

Médiévalité retrouvée

by Klod5

La visite des Cadets de Gascogne - une société des gens de lettres et d'artistes parisiens originaires du Sud Ouest - à Carcassonne, en 1898, marque le début de l'exploitation de la citadelle comme lieu privilégié de reconstitution du Moyen Age. A cette occasion une grande cavalcade historique, faite de figurants, en costumes du XIIIe siècle, parcourt la ville basse avant de connaître son apothéose en arrivant à la cité. A partir de cette date des manifestations identiques se déroulent, sporadiquement, dans la citadelle, lors de visites officielles ou de commémorations. Depuis une dizaine d'années les "Médiévales" offrent, durant le mois d'août, outre un spectacle historique, des tournois et des scènes de vie inspirées de la vie au Moyen Age. Plus récemment, à l'occasion de la "fête du cochon", l'union des commerçants met en scène, usant de costumes d'époque, la légende de dame Carcas jetant le cochon depuis le haut des remparts. The visit of the Cadets of Gascogne - a society of people of letters and Parisian artists original of the West South - in Carcassonne, in 1898, mark the beginning of the exploitation of the citadel like privileged place of reconstitution of the Aged Means. To this opportunity a big historic cavalcade, made of extras, in costumes of the XIIIth century, browses the low city before knowing its apotheosis while arriving to the city. From this identical demonstration date take place, sporadically, in the citadel, at the time of official visits or commemorations. Since about ten years the " Medieval " offer, during the month of August, besides a historic spectacle, the tournaments and the inspired scenes of life of life to the Aged Means. More lately, on the occasion of the "feast of the pig", the union of the tradesmen puts in stage, using costumes of time, the legend of Carcas lady throwing the pig since the top of the battlements.

Sacred Nasar basil

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The main sight of an internal part of the top city is the Sacred Nasar basil. The following is known about him from "history of Lombardy", written by a dominican monk in 1230.

Nasar was a son of a Jew Afranius and Sacred Perpetuya who was a very devout Roman. She was christened by St Peter. Nasar followed his mother and was christened. In order to prevent prosecutions for belief, parents asked the son to leave Rome. He went to the north in a company of seven samaritans.

As you walk through La Cite' you will find many shops and restaurants to choose from. The accompanying picture is of a charming pizzeria that we passed and I just couldn't resist taking a photo of. This restaurant is probably the most photographed place in the City as you just hear camera's going click, click, click
