Carcassonne is known as the most formidable fortified complex still visible in Europe. The medieval city’s origins go even further back to the 1st century BC. The locality was roman back then. It comprises 1.86 miles (3 km) of battlements, 52 towers, two principal gates (the "Porte Narbonnaise" and the "Porte d’Aude"), the Saint Nazaire basilica, a count’s castle, and more. It is the epitome of Middle Ages architecture.
