TO SEE AND DO
Overlooking the Aude valley and surrounded by ramparts several kilometres long, the citadel dating from the 13th century is one of France’s most renowned historical sites. It’s a location that should not be missed, and particularly the splendour of the Château Comtal and the Basilica of Saint-Nazaire. Restored by Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century, the citadel has UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
