雨声1668At noon, take the train to Carcassonne, the southernmost town in France. It is close to Spain and has a famous castle. The ancient castle in Carcassonne is said to be the largest and best-preserved castle in Europe. The solid medieval castle has a double wall of inner and outer city. The inner wall is a Romanesque fortress and the outside is a Gothic wall. There are 26 arrow towers in the inner and outer cities. After putting down the luggage, he went out of the city to board the castle with great interest, strolling in the fortress caves and old streets, feeling the history of knights in medieval Europe, until 7 o’clock in the afternoon when I came down from the castle, looking back at its silhouette, it felt a bit mysterious. Back to the riverside of the ancient city, night fell, and the whole view of the castle from a distance was beautiful! Walk back to the hotel under the moonlight. The next day we went to visit the castle again. We went out of the city gate and crossed the small bridge and then walked into this magnificent castle. When we entered the castle, we had to pass through the gate with a suspension bridge. I thought of the knight Don Quixote. Under the bright blue sky, the picture in the lens is even better. By the way, although the castle is a world heritage site, there is no charge. There are a few fortresses with cultural relics that charge a fee for entry, but no entry. There are old streets and hotels in the castle, and there are many tourists.
