Highlights of the year

A city of great events

Due to the current health crisis, Carcassonnais providers have organized compliance with barrier gestures according to the standards of their respective professions; while ensuring your comfort. You are requested to comply with the instructions that will be given to you on site, for your safety and that of other people. Several events were created expressly to discover the Medieval City, the Bastide Saint-Louis in peace. Lac de la Cavayère also offers original and reassuring activities. No doubt we’ll find the usual schedule for our festivals and events next year. You will come back ! The deconfinement being progressive, we work daily to give you updated information on our website. But before any trip, do not forget to confirm the opening of each establishment, business or cultural site. Thank you for your understanding.
