Description:

La Cite, which has been termed as the world heritage site of the year 1997, has quite some history to it beginning from 2000 years ago. Being one largest and former fortress of Europe, this site played concluding character in Languedoc’s history. The site was developed into Roman town by the Oppidum of Iron Age in 1st century BCE while the city state came under the possession of Viscount Trencavel, ruling over Bas Languedoc. In the 8th century, this town was intruded by Charlemagne and then named after Cascas’s Grand Dame. Be wary in the autumn and winter though, as most things inside the walls will be closed, such as the museum as well as access to the ramparts. Aside from that, you can walk around for hours and get lost in this beautiful late-medieval city. Just be careful, some of the walls aren't as solid as they seem!
