Living France in Languedoc Roussillon: Demonstrating a Little Bit of Tolerance at La Cite, Carcassonne

Living France in Languedoc Roussillon: Demonstrating a Little Bit of Tolerance at La Cite, Carcassonne | European Travel and Tourism | Scoop.it
Brian S's insight:

Summer is in full flow in Carcassonne, France and the Carcassonne festival brings with it art, music, drama and cultural explorations. Supported by the ever presence of the sun and some exceptionally warm weather for the end of June and the early part of July. On the 14th of July we have Bastille day, a bank holiday and some serious fireworks at La Cite. This year there will be a few extra viewers in the form of a set of sculptures on display until around the end of September.
