Carcassonne in Carcassonne

The mediaeval Cité de Carcassonne in southern France is quite something to see. It perches on a hill, massive ramparts (partially reconstructed) surrounding an historic town.

Carcassonne basks in the golden dusk light

I first visited this UNESCO World Heritage Site a few years ago, on a whirlwind trip from Paris. (See my earlier post, A Short Detour To Carcassonne, France, which includes lots more photos of the ancient city itself.)

I originally learned of Carcassonne from a board game named after the city. Earlier this year I returned to there, and this time I even got to play the game on the ramparts of the citadel itself, with Rich and our friends Jamie and Griff.

As with all games, it was a transient experience. But still another goal checked off the Bucket List!
