Right Bank:
the Cité, a medieval fortress with its Romanesque and gothic basilica, its fortified castle (where the Counts used to live), its alley-ways, its wells, enclosed within two lines of ramparts.
Left Bank:
Saint-Louis Bastide, its churches, its grid iron streets, its main square, its private houses witnesses of the old clothmerchants prosperity of the 17th and 18th centuries, its corner bastions, its avenues.

In the walls and the towers of the Cité, in the houses, the streets, the squares of the Bastide, in the course of the Canal du Midi that links the Mediterranean to the Atlantic Ocean, time has clearly marked its passing. Sitting on the banks of the Aude, a pyrenean river flowing to the Mediterranean, Carcassonne is waiting for you : she knows how to share her memories.
