Know the city of Carcassonne using rental Car Carcassonne

Carcassonne is a fortified city in Occitanie region in France. The city sits on the Aude plains lying between the famous trades routes linking the Mediterranean Sea with the Atlantic. Historically, the city was inhabited since the Neolithic period. The Romans were the first to identify the city’s strategic position and occupied the hilltop until the fall of the Western Roman Empire. In the late 15th century, the Visogoths took over the city. Its strategic position attracted successive rulers who expanded its boundaries until the Pyrenees Treaty of 1659.

Carcassonne is famous for the Cite de Carcassonne, which is a medieval fortress that was restored by architect Eugene Viollet-le-duc in the 19th century and was listed as a UNESCO World heritage site in 1997. Wine making, tourism, and manufacturing are the key economic activities of the city.
