Carcassonne

Carcassonne is the largest and best preserved medieval castle in Europe.

You must come here!! Enchanting!! Walk on the ramparts and imagine what life was like 1000 years ago.

My photos don’t do justice.

When traveling in the Languedoc region you must try the regional speciality, cassoulet, which is a stew of white beans, sausage, and duck meat, cooked very slowly for hours. French comfort food. C’est superb.

We’re leaving now for two hour drive to Nimes. Nimes has best the preserved Roman amphitheater and Roman forum. More later.
