Gilles Aycelin DungeonNarbonne
This 42-metre-high keep, attached to the Palace-Museum of the Archbishops, protected the city in medieval times. When the weather is fine, it affords an exceptional 360-degree panoramic view of the city, the lagoons, the Corbières, and even the Pyrenees. But you’ll have to earn it by climbing 162 magnificent narrow spiralling stairs. When you reach the top, you’ll be just a few steps from the upper terrace and its watchtowers with the best view of the Cathédrale Saint Just et Saint Pasteur and Narbonne below your feet!
Wink: You’ll also get a good view of the Cathedral from the A9 highway! At Christmas, it is decorated with a big red bow! ;-)
There is a charge for visiting this attraction: €6 in the Palace-Cathedral ticket and €10 in the Monumental Pass.
