Lecture no. 11 from the course: The Great Tours: Experiencing Medieval Europe

Carcassonne—Fortress of the Languedoc

Taught by Professor Kenneth R. Bartlett | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses

The fortifications of this exquisite, romantic city were considered virtually impregnable. Study in detail Carcassonne’s complex military defenses and the brilliant strategy behind their use. Then visit the monumental Castle of the Counts, with its dramatic towers, portcullises, and layers of defense—a stronghold of the French crown in an unstable region.
