    This was a reasonably priced and well-located hotel. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

    Unique Quality: Make sure to reserve a room with a view of the Mediaeval Cite.

street parking

by shoppeuse

We are looking at an apt for rent outside the Cité. The advert mentions that you must pay to park on the street between certain hours. How much is parking on the street? Thanks so much.

Re: street parking

by cubsur

I hope you aren't coming just yet! I have just returned from a day trip to Carcassonne and the cité and it was PACKED! Seething masses of humanity literally blocking the way and every street lined with parked cars and every off street car park full.

I decided to go back in the dead of winter.

Des Wisigoths à l'institution contale

by Klod5

Après la dislocation de l'Empire romain, Carcaso, devenue Carcasona, est placée sous la domination des Wisigoths dont le royaume s'étend à l'Espagne et à la Gaule du sud et de l'ouest. Après la victoire des Francs sur Alaric II à Vouillé en 507, les Wisigoths conservent la péninsule ibérique et la Septimanie (l'actuel Bas-Languedoc) sur la bordure nord de laquelle Carcasona demeure l'une des villes frontière. La ville devient au cours du VIe siècle, avec Agde et Maguelone, le siège d'un évêché que concrétise l'édification d'une cathédrale wisigothique dont l'emplacement n'est pas déterminé. Au VIIIe siècle, la conquête arabe triomphe des Wisigoths, mais dès 759 la ville est conquise par le roi des Francs, Pépin le Bref, qui s'impose alors dans toute la Septimanie. À ces événements se rattache la légende de Dame Carcas. L'administration du nouvel empire est placée sous l'autorité comtale installant à la tête du comté de Carcassonne des familles de lignages anciens : la dynastie des Oliba jusqu'au Xe siècle relayée par les Comminges-Couserans au XIe siècle. After the dislocation of the Roman empire, Carcaso, become Carcasona, is placed under the domination of the Wisigothses whose kingdom spreads to Spain and Gaul of the south and the west. After the victory of the Francs on Alaric II in Vouillé in 507, the Wisigothses preserve the Iberian peninsula and the Septimanie (the present Low Languedoc) on the north border of which Carcasona stays one of the cities border. The city becomes during Life century, with Agde and Maguelone, the seat of a bishopric that the edification of a cathedral wisigothique whose site is not determined concretizes. In the VIIIth century, the Arabian conquest triumphs over the Wisigothses, but since 759 the city is conquered by the king of the Francs, Seed the Brief, that imposes itself then in the whole Septimanie. To these events the legend of Lady Carcas is connected. The administration of the new empire is placed under the authority comtale installing to the head of the county of Carcassonne of the old lineage families : the dynasty of the Olibas until the Xth century relieved by the Comminges-Couserans in the XIth century.

The market-A slice of French life

by raquelitalarga

Find out from tourist info what days the market is held in the 'new town' square. I think these photos were taken Saturday morning. I loved the piles of enormous vegetables and the locals kissing three times as greeting.

Day Trip to l'Abbaye de St Hilaire

by Redang

Old fortified Abbey with a great Romanesque Church as well as a remarkable Gothic Cloister (14th century).

This is the place where monks invented the Blanquette sparkling wine in 1.531.

At around 15 kms. south of Carcassonne, take road D204-D104.

Great location and really good value

by Waoife about L'Arbre de Vie

Located right in the centre of the main square in "La Cité" this restaurant is good value and has a brilliant location - sit back & enjoy good food & wine with nice views too. The set menus are really good value and include local specialities such as cassoulet - a kind of baked bean & meat dish which is pretty good.
