|... but it was surprisingly tasty|
The fortified Carcassonne is the largest of its kind in Europe and is also a UNESCO world heritage. However, it is also a tourist trap !
From other bike tourists we were told that tomorrow's stage will be a lot of detours because of extensive cutting down of trees along the canal, so we have decided to cycle on backcountry roads and find our way to Homps (our next stop) on our own.
Every night, the Carcassonne castle (which is near our hotel) is illuminated – and it is quite a sight !!
