A delightful step back into the past. Get the audio guide and it will take you throughout meaningfully. I especially enjoyed the lord's receiving room with the bits of wall paintings that had been uncovered. The final few rooms are a museum of medieval capitals, windows, headstones and tombs. Don't miss the 12th century font, it is quite glorious. Finally there is the gift shop but I was rushed out of there at closing time without being able to see if they had anything worthwhile :(

Entry charge to the Chateau with an audio guide. A shame the Chateau did not offer guided tours in English considering the number of english speaking visitors, but it does mean, you can go round the chateau at your own pace. Worth visiting....

Originally built in 1125, this was Carcassonne's 3rd level of defense (after the two walls). We followed the excellent audio guide after watching a short movie about the history of the castle and its restoration. A great way to spend a few hours!

Well worth a visit to walk around and see the courtyards, towers and buildings. They make up a very complete medieval experience.

A couple of hours wandering around this restored historical site is well worth the effort and the entrance fee.
