No one forgets their first, stunning sight of Carcassonne’s La Cité with its witch-hat turrets glinting in the sunlight. Within its ramparts as you walk the cobbled streets, it’s easy to understand why it is France’s third-most-visited attraction.
Languedoc’s castles and abbeys are set in an area of beautiful countryside. The legends surrounding them are of buried treasure, the Holy Grail, sun worship and ladies with a knack for precipitating disaster.
