The Walled City of Carcassonne

Atlas Obscura did a brief entry today on "La Cite Mediavale de Carcassonne", the restored medieval walled city that inspired the popular game series. It's a concise overview of the famous French city, so for those who want some more information on the real thing, point your browser at a couple of official French cultural & tourism sites for maps, history, interactive tours, and more. (English versions are available for both of these sites.) Its famous concentric walls and blue roofs will be familiar to fans of the game.
