LA PORTE NARBONNAISE

La Cité
11000 Carcassonne
Main entrance door to the Medieval City. Built around 1280, it is made up of two huge spur towers. The Narbonnaise gate, located to the east, was built around 1280 during the reign of Philippe III the Bold and is made up of two enormous spur towers. It owes its name to its orientation towards Narbonne. In the 19th century Viollet-le-Duc reconstructed the crenellations and the slate roof and provided it with a pseudo drawbridge which did not originally exist.
