Carcassonne

Europe

The name Carcassonne might sound familiar if you are into board games, I myself have never played it, but the fact that it involves a castle gives you an idea as to where the game has gotten its name. The medieval fortress sits on top of a small hill just outside of modern Carcassonne. On my way there, I marvelled at the cuteness of the little houses and the beauty of the clouds.
