    Lovely 14th Century Cloister

    by pigletsmom Updated Jul 18, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Connecting the Archibiship's apartments and the Cathédrale St-Just-et-St-Pasteur is the very striking cloister. Built in the 14th century, the cloister is very beautiful, with intriquing worn down gargoyles, gothic arched walkways, and a lovely interior garden. I thought the cloister was one of the prettiest I had seen in France.

    The cloister set just outside the cathedral

    18th-19th Century Architecture

    by pigletsmom Written Jul 18, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Beautiful Edwardian Building

    Canal de la Robine

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Medieval Architecture

    by pigletsmom Written Jul 18, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Interesting turret and colorful buildings

    The Lovely Medieval Square & The Hotel De Ville

    by pigletsmom Updated Jul 17, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Cathedral St Just et St Pasteur

    by leics Written Apr 12, 2006

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Address: Towers over the Medieval part of the city.

    A fantastic gorge with plenty of small scouring's you can have a good refreshing bath in. Remind you of Norway, but often with a lot better temperature!

    Directions: Drive to Roquebrun turn left and follow the road and sign.
