Carcassonne : Michelin's recommendations
With its double encircling of ramparts and its chateau, its formidable citadel built between the Languedoc plain and the first foothills of Corbière, the city of Viscount Terncavel nourishes the imagination of all those who come upon it. Saved from ruin by Mérimée and restored (sometimes somewhat damagingly) by Viollet-le-Duc, it has maintained all its evocative power and this makes it a place to be visited in Languedoc.
