My World Tuesday: Carcassonne, France



Looking at the ancient walled city as we walked across the bridge over the River Aude.
Dick went up to explore the Mediaeval town, but I had to stop to rest and didn't reach it.
Dick found some of the doors in the old city were very small (above)
but I found one even smaller (below) and we weren't even in the Mediaeval part of Carcassonne.

Sorry you didn’t get to the medieval town in France, Kay. But I’m glad to hear you will be able to make it to the coast in the near future! The doors are so intriguing … each one different from the other. The tiny one at the bottom has a purpose I was told when I saw something similar in the Coliseum in Rome. What that is escapes me at the moment. :)

Beautiful old doors! I do find them fascinating! That little one really does raise lots of questions???? Love it! Great post, Kay, as always! Hope you have a lovely evening!

Great tour of a beautiful and interesting place. I love the circle over the door in the last shot.

I come from Reader Wil’s blog (I am late reading blogs as I have also been traveling.) I enjoyed looking at all your pictures of France. My mother and I rented a flat for a month in St Malo when I was a teenager and I loved the place. I also went to Carcassonne a couple of times but I had a film camera then. I enjoyed your blog.

Beautiful plaace. The small doors are really nice.

It looks like an interesting town to visit. Lots of history there! The dog in the first photo reminds me of the dog statues you see on graves.

Beautiful! I especially like the one with the bridge where you can see the castle up at the hill. Have a nice day :)

That's very nice that you visited France for me, so I don't have to go there, lol !

Fascinating selection of doors, Kay, especially the small one. Thanks for your concern and kind comments re our journey to East Africa. I will post about the adventure soon. Blessings to you and pats to Lindy. Jo

Those doors are very intriguing, especially the tiny one. Thanks for taking us along on your walk.

Those doors remind us just how small some of our forebears were and how little living space they had. Beautiful photos, Kay:-)

I read Karen's comment.
Is that a really cat's door ?

Another great tour Kay. Where are we off to next? Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

Dimple said...

Too bad you didn't make the old city, but you got some great shots anyway! I was in?) in the first shot. A chicken-breathing dog?????????

Great post!

I love the old door also. Intersting.
All great shots and I dream of someday maybe going there.
Have a wonderful day.
