|Description ||La Cité de Carcassonne, seen here from the south.|
Ancient citadel which goes back as far as time. Although the main remains of this fantastic fairy story city are now mediaeval much of the walls can be seen to date back to Visigoth and Roman times. This is of course, all built upon a citadel which was here long before any of them came here.
|Not sure why this is on the Megalithic Portal. What is the prehistoric connection? - I have loads of photos of Carcassonne - all medieval too.|
|I put it on because the site has been inhabited and fortified as an important crossroads and river crossing since at least the bronze age, if not for always. Ok, theres not a lot left to see of the ancient inhabitations, but it is the site of such a place. |
|So is London!|
|It's a lovely picture, and brightens up our winter days. Much more appealing than London too!|
