It is near to the Mediterranean (about 9 miles away)and had totally different atmosphere to Carcassonne.
St Eutrope cathedral
Les HallesIf I had had more space in my suitcase this stall on the outdoor market could have had a lot of my money the lovely metal birds - one of which is now on my SIL's doorstep(she has a Hoopoe visitor every Summer)
This is where the old city gates stood.
St Pauls Church was beautiful!
Now……..Excuse me while I close my eyes!
Here is an extract from the internet(which, remember, was the open sea at the time)
I do not like frogs so got a bit of a shock when I leaned over for a look before reading the notice.
The Information Centre was right beside the Canal du Midi.
I realise that I haven't even taken you to the Cathedral or to view the beautiful architecture so I will return to Narbonne another time!
Right now we are headed to the beautiful place we found to have a coffee as I am joining Bluebeard and Elizabeth for T Stands For Tuesday!
The most surprising place and so pleased we came across it!
So much so that I wrote a review for Trip Advisor
I snapped this table at the side of us just before a group of people arrived - they ordered the most amazing looking crepes!The leather bound menu
Hubby was not in the mood for photos - even with threats that I would put this on anyway!
I had a frappe while hubby had a tea and ice-cream!The choice of cakes looked wonderful - wish we had indulged now….maybe next time!!!
Hubby was happier earlier though!
Even the toilet in this place was spectacular! Can you spy the little rolled hand towels.
We both loved Narbonne so much we think we will be heading back here one day!
Thanks for looking, Chrisx
