UNESCO - Historic Fortified City Of Carcassonne, France

I immediately fell in love with this view of the fortified french town of Carcassonne! My brother went for a trip with his university mates a few years back, and sent me this card that amplified my already-existent love for France :)
Carcassonne is situated in the Aude department, in south-central France. In the 6th century BC the hill site of Carsac became an important trading place, and it was fortified by the romans around 100 BC. The fortifications were expanded throughout the years, and were thoroughly restored in 1853 by the architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc. In 1997 it was added to the whs unesco list :)
