The place to be for history buffs and everyone who wants to add a history touch to his/her visit to Narbonne. Walk freely through the gardens and try an exhibition if you have the time.

In contrast to the unfinished adjoining cathedral, the archbishops of their day made sure that their palace was completed. Even just the exterior is well worth a look.

Interesting to see a less ornate cathedral and cloister than many in France. Quite grey and gloomy in places, but the windows in the church are beautiful when the sun shines. Worth a visit, but remember it's closed on Mondays.

Just entering from the Donjon and walking along the old streets of Narbonne, we ended up in this little, lovely corner. Worth a walk and some pictures. I liked the gurgles.

This place is the main attraction of the town's historic centre. It is worth taking some time to go around and check out all the nooks and corners of the buildings.
