It is Saturday and a beautiful sunny day. The urge to go out and explore is big…. The image of today is a photograph taken in Carcassonne, one of the major historical sites in the Aude departement in Languedoc-Rousillon region in South of France. The area where we organize our tours and where we also live at this point in time. This so called “la Cite” is one of the best known and most used locations for filming of medieval movies. It has a quality for each visitor of “been here before” and it is resounding in the memory like a familiar place. Carcassonne is small enough to be cozy, there is enough to see and to do to spend the day and you can make beautiful scenic walk around the fortifications. On clear days the view of the surrounding lands is astonishing and it is a good starting point for the exploration of the famous Cathar country….
There is only one thing to say… come, be welcome, and see for yourself……
