    18th-19th Century Architecture

    Beautiful Edwardian Building

    Outside of the Medieval section of town are grand Boulevards lined with rows of manacured trees and Edwardian and Art Nouveau townhomes. This part of Narbonne really reminded me of Paris, and was very pretty and quite unexpected. You will start to see these buildings on the east side of the canal as you walk towards the older gothic section.

    Decorative bridge leading to the banks

    The pretty Canal de la Robine makes the town very relaxing and cool in the summer. Have a picnic lunch by the banks or just take a stroll, it's very nice and romantic. There are parks above the banks overlooking the canal.

    Interesting turret and colorful buildings

    Narbonnne has some lovely Medieval architecture in and around the Cathedral. Across the canal are some nice very old courtyards and squares near the very old Basilique St-Paul-Serge. This ancient church was built over a 4th century pagen temple.

    The Lovely Medieval Square & The Hotel De Ville

    by pigletsmom Updated Jul 17, 2004

    The Hotel de Ville

    The main focal point of the old center of Narbonne is a lovely square that reminds me very much of Munich. Very formal and gothic, yet a very lively square, surrounded by busy shops and cafes. I loved the medieval section of Narbonne, I was very impressed with the beauty and energy of this city.

    The canal de la Robine flows through the middle of Narbonne and is connected to the canal de Midi. Nice place for a walk.

    Cathedral St Just et St Pasteur

    Cathedral

    Small, elaborately carved and very atmospheric. Beautiful cloisters. Look for the Medieval carvings and wall-paintings (14th century), some of which were only rediscovered in 1981.
