La Cité, Carcassonne – Day 1.
We seem to have brought the Welsh weather with us to Carcassonne, it’s still raining today but we wrapped up and headed for La Cité.
We looked at le châteaux Comtal before walking around the perimeter of la Cité with a warm Crèpe. We will explore the rest of la Cité tomorrow.
Then we headed into the centre ville and took the 213 step spiral staircase up the tower of église Saint Vincent where we had the most amazing view.
We ended our afternoon with late lunch, wine and coffee, frogs legs and snails of course ;) and an obligatory trip to a patisserie and chocolaterie. Gill and I may have perused a few shops too.
