La Bastide Saint Louis, Carcassonne Center

The gates of La Bastide Saint Louis were designed to protect the lower town. The military enclosure's walls were built in the 14th century, and four bastions were added at each corner of the town in the 16th century. Stop in the central square to see the Fountain of Neptune, which was added in 1770. Religious buildings, mansions, and gardens ring the square.
