There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at La playa de Tamariu, kick back and relax at Cala Montgo, pause for some serene contemplation at Parroquia de Sant Genis, and head outdoors with Sa Cova.

Carcassonne ©

Medieval Heart of France

Best known as a fortified town, Carcassonne is a walled city that provided the inspiration for the castle in Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" and the location for many scenes in Kevin Costner's movie "Robin Hood." For a daily dose of excitement, medieval jousting tournaments are held twice per day between the two walls--while this may sound like a typical touristy show, it's actually an entertaining display of combative competition and horsemanship.
Cité de Carcassonne and Eglise Saint-Nazaire are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Grotte de Niaux and Gouffre Geant de Cabrespine. Change things up with a short trip to River Rafting & Tubing in Foix (about 1h 20 min away). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Cathar Castles, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Eglise St. Vincent, explore the activities along Lac de la Cavayere, and step into the grandiose world of Chateau Comtal.

To find photos, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Carcassonne tour itinerary tool.

Getting from Barcelona to Carcassonne by car takes about 3 hours. Other options: take a train; or take a bus. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Barcelona in August since evenings lows in Carcassonne dip to 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Tue) early enough to drive to Cannes.
