Palais des Archeveques reviews
Visit and discover for yourself. The history is impressive and interesting. Part of a lovely area of Narbonne. more »
This huge old fortress has been recycled as the Hotel de Ville where all the usual governmental functions are performed. You can wander around and enjoy the special architecture. Archaeological... more »
Magestical site, transported in time, this structure although incomplete stills gives the impression of grandeur. Feel history come alive, this place certainly takes you on a journey through time. Just use your imagination.
Stunning medieval original structure with several later additions in subsequent centuries. The former palace of the archbishops of Narbonne is now a museum and public building at the hub of the city and providing a magnificent backdrop to the main square in the centre. At the rear, past the stunted cathedral, visitors have a chance to relax in the well tended and laid out gardens, providing wonderful views of the ancient building alongside the contemporary oxidized iron installation to access a less interesting space on a higher level. No visit to Narbonne should exclude.
