Averages for Carcassonne in September
Tourist season begins to taper off slightly during September, although there are still many things to see and do in the city of Carcassonne. The beaches are still open (and will be for another month or so).
It is still warm enough to swim since the average temperature is 68°F (20°C) during this month. High temperatures can get up to 77°F (25°C), and low average temperatures only dip to 53°F (12°C).
This comfortable time of year would be a perfect opportunity to view the amazing architecture of the Basillica of St. Nazaire and St. Celese, an official national landmark, or the Cathedral, which is the seat of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Carcassonne.
These two beautiful churches share a close historical connection and should be seen in conjunction with one another to appreciate their shared histories.
The Memorial House, home of poet Joe Bousquet, has been preserved exactly as it was when he entertained many French artists and writers. Also, the Museum of Fine Arts displays European art from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Neither of these museums charge admission.
The second large fair of the year is held in early September (the first was in March, and the third will be in November). These fairs are designed to attract tourists and citizens alike, offering crafts and produce from Carcassonne and surrounding areas. These fairs are busy, noisy and exciting.
The average precipitation for the month of September is 48 mm falling on an average of 9 days.
There are typically 10 hours of sunlight per day with 12 hours of daylight in total.
