Carcassone Castle

How's this for a community garden site?

This city is unique in that the outer wall is double and then inside the chateau is protected by yet another moat and wall. This, by the way, is the inner moat. 

It was highly fortified because of it’s strategic position on the border of the frontier of Occitan and Aragon. Many of the castle-fortresses of this region were built by the Romans. 

The monument center left is of the man who instigated the rebuilding of old Carcassonne from near ruin in the 1800s. 

Thank you, Sir.
