Carcassonne was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1997, just one year after the Canal du Midi itself was inscribed on the list. From Carcassonne, you will walk out to meet the towns of Marseilette and Agen Minervois, which are clustered around the local chateau. In Le Somail, you can rent a legendary Mythic 2 CV car and explore the surrounding area of olive groves and vineyards. For reading enthusiasts, we also have a tip - the renowned antique shop Madame Gourgue. St Pierre Cathedral, the majestic castle and the history-steeped town centre await you in Capestang.
