Mirepoix and Carcassonne

Mirepoix is one of the prettiest villages in south-west France.  Mirepoix is located near Carcassonne in Ariège Pyrenees.  It has beautiful, colorful, colombage façades and has about 3100 permanent residents.

    

Carcassonne is a fortified medieval town founded by the Visigoths in the 5th century.  It’s located in Aude department in Languedoc-Roussillon.  It’s beautiful to see but unfortunately there are loads of tourists.  It’s a must see all the same.
