Great batalay 2011-03-18 20:08

Hello Robert,

I had heard about the Castle of Carcassone, but don't remember seeing a photo of before. It looks impregnable, and what violence it has probably seen. This is an effective angle to bring out its most salient feature, its invicibility.

Warm regards from Virginia.

Smile To batalay: Carcassone 5

Although it seems impregnable, it was besieged and captured by Simon de Montfort in the 13th century. He made it his headquarters for his campaign to exterminate the French Protestants. It was a bloody time in the south of France. The night shots of the city under the sodium vapor lamps are not so sinister looking as this.

Thanks for your comments.
