Video: Carcassonne and Edith Piaf

By | June 18, 2009

Carcassonne is a medieval town with the longest city walls in Europe. Sitting atop a hill overlooking vast green plains stretching to the Pyrénées, it boasts battlements and ramparts dating to the 1st-century Romans. The fortress at Carcassone was restored in 1853 by Eugène Viollet-le-Duc and designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Here, listen to Edith Piaf, France's best known chanteuse, sing "L'himme a L'amour" as you enjoy the sights and scenes of Carcassonne.
