  • Find out about the medieval persecutions that took place in the city.

  • Discover the ex-prominent religion of Carcassonne.

  • Meet the lady that inspired the name of the citĂ©.


You are a 17th-century nobleman who has heard about the legend of a mysterious ghost that roams around the streets of the Carcassonne citadel. This ghost is an incredibly beautiful but sad princess who didn’t get to meet her lover in her past life and is still looking for him. 

As a wannabe protector of the city, you wish to set this female ghost at rest and win the sympathy of Carcassonne’s citizens. 
The lady is said to cross the river Aude sometimes from the Lower Town, so you take the chance to spot, follow and help the unfortunate woman.
