  • The basilica boasts some hugely ornate and very colourful stained glass windows. We particularly liked the massive round tartan-esque patterned north window, but the rest are all gorgeous.

  • This is a nice church located within the Old Town. It is worth visiting but is not spectacular for me.

  • It is a Roman Catholic minor basilica located in the citadel of Carcassonne. Was built in 12th century in the Gothic-Romanesque architectural tradition. The main entrance in its north wall is formed by a Romanesque portal of five receding arches over two doors.
  • Beautiful cathedral, always enjoy just wandering in whenever we visit the city. This time we took a moment to light a candle to bless our wedding anniversary. It felt very special.
