Everyone knows Carcassonne, the largest fortified city in Europe, lying between Narbonne and Toulouse.
the city, the myriad of quaint alleyways have surrendered totally to tacky
tourist shops and pretentious restaurants. The only remaining calm in the
city, save for the odd gaudily dressed nag leading a cart of tourists,
is to be found between the outer walls, in the area termed the Lices.
