To actually walk on La Cité's ramparts, you have to pay to enter the Château Comtal, a keep built for the viscounts of Carcassonne during the 12th century. Admission includes access to the keep’s rooms and a section of the battlements, with fabulous views over the surrounding countryside and the distant Pyrenees. Tours in several languages are available in summer; check with the tourist office for schedules. It's free on the first Sunday of the month from November to March.
