Carcassonne’s walled city – a quiet walk

During our two months of confinement, our beautiful walled city was off limits. On May 11, thanks to deconfinement, her walls opened again. So on Wednesday May 13, Jeff and I walked 5 minutes from home to Carcassonne’s walled city. What a beautiful, peaceful experience.

Jeff’s comments: “This walk couldn’t be more perfect. It’s a sunny sky, there isn’t any wind, we’re in a medieval walled city that was originally built 2000 years ago, perfectly restored 150 years ago, and there aren’t any tourists!” It was a day that will always be special to both of us – a once in a lifetime experience.

I always try to take photos without people in them, but on this day it was actually easy! Here’s a little photo essay of our beautiful medieval walled city with no people whatsoever.

    Beautiful photographs! And the plane trees are gorgeous! I remember them lining Cours Mirabeau in Aix and also lining both sides of the road to St. Remy.
    It may be a few years til I get there, but I will get there!
    Enjoy your slice of heaven! Stay safe!
