A short day trip from Sete was the mid evil jewel of Carcassonne.
Who wouldn't love a chance to see a mid evil city that has been completely rebuilt to the specifications that it had in its prime? That is what Carcassonne, France has done. This castle was used as a strategic point since the Roman Empire, and over the years has had a amazing castle built on it that has been restored beautifully by the French.
Our children's favorite part seemed to be the school house museum that was set up like an 18th century school house, complete with hopscotch, wooden desks, ink wells, dunce caps, and old photographs and posters from the time period.
We couldn't drag our children away from the quill pens that they were able to write with. They spent a lot of time scratching our letters and notes with ink wells and quill in old wooden desks. I had never seen them so excited to be in school!
The walls of the castle had a walkway all around the castle walls with the opportunity to look into the courtyard from above.
These kids can play a game where ever they are. It is cute to see.
