LA PORTE D'AUDE

LA PORTE D'AUDE

Tower in Carcassonne

  • Gateway to the city and with a typically medieval appearance. Very picturesque route and magnificent viewpoint over the ramparts. To the west, the Porte d'Aude faces the river of the same name. It is located near the count's castle. This door is extended by the barbican of the Aude, partly destroyed in 1816 to build the Saint-Gimer church. Only the ramp surrounded by crenellated walls remains. This door, with a typically medieval appearance, has served as the backdrop for many film shoots...
