La Cité

recommendation by keithintaurize

This wonderfully evocative citadel, the largest of its type in Europe, has UNESCO Heritage Status, and it is not difficult to see why. Built on the ruins of a much older structure, La Cité was at centre stage of the crusade against the Cathars in the early Middle Ages. Now it provides an attractive site for exploration, full of history, shops, restaurants and a unique ambience. There is even an open air theatre which stages a summer festival of music in the shadow of the ancient walls.
