Carcassonne Day Two : Crossing the River Aude


The rather beautiful River Aude. The bridge is Le Pont Vieux which is one of the few medieval bridges remaining in France, although it was restored during the nineteenth century. It’s a pedestrian only bridge now as a newer road bridge has been constructed a little further down the river.


Liam on the river crossing. The blog title of crossing the River Aude perhaps sounds more exotic than the reality….


The fast flowing river.


The Romans called the river Atax, it later became the Aude and it’s 225 kilometres long flowing from the Pyrenees to the Mediterranean Sea near to Narbonne.
