Carcassonne

Carcassonne castle, “Le Cite”( e accented but won’t work on this damn notsosmartphone)
Is a stunning early medieval fortified city in the Languedoc  and not far north of the village house.

A UNESCO world heritage site, there is so much info on the net just look it up.
This was our day out.
Wandering around the ramparts marvelling at the history and architecture and checking out  the many great little shops.
Then we all went to see an amazing and hilarious Chevaliers spectacular with a good plot and lots of Knights fighting over beautiful maidens, some of whom kicked a little ass themselves.

    Carcassonne is truly one of my favourite places on earth. I have friends who spent a month in the walled city after they married earlier this year and will be there again through October. This time I am demanding a visit (they’ve been married long enough to allow a gate-crasher at the party I reckon!)
