Averages for Carcassonne in February
February is still considered winter in Carcassonne. The mild winters there provide an excellent opportunity to see what the city has to offer in terms of sightseeing, food and history without fighting large summer crowds.
Many tourists go to Carcassonne to see the castle walls whose origins date back as early as 3500 B.C. The walls, a national landmark, became a World Heritage Site back in 1997. This is a must-see and there are year-round tours, but don’t go between 12pm and 2pm because, like many French operations, the castle might be shut down.
February is also an ideal time for shopping in Carcassonne’s many souvenir and gift shops, or you could browse the city’s many wine and specialty shops. One of these includes Esprit de Sel, a sort of knick-knack shop that houses unique treasures from both local and surrounding companies.
