Narbonne is a tranquil, Mediterranean town located in the south of France about 15 km from the sea. The water of the Canal de la Robine gently flows through the centre of the village, and it gradually makes its way towards the Aude River via the Canal du Midi. Explore the picturesque country terrain surrounding Narbonne with a car hire from Auto Europe, and appreciate the roadside views of the vineyards and olive groves that give this region its classic French charm.
An interesting monument and testament of the town's history is the Narbonne Cathedral. This impressive religious structure is one of the country's largest churches, but interestingly, the Gothic 14th century building was never completed. Learn about the varying reasons behind this phenomenon, and tour the massive cathedral during your stay in Narbonne. To this day, it is the most popular historical site and Roman Catholic place of worship in the town.
Narbonne is renowned for many goods that originate from the Languedoc-Roussillon territory, and you can find the locally harvested olives, honey, herbs, fish, and wine at the century-old le Halles Market. Since the Roman times, honey has been a popular specialty produced in the region, and this is thanks to the rosemary, thyme, and lavender that grow near the Mediterranean coast. The herbs and flowers in the area give the honey its distinct flavour.
