Introduction

You might only find yourself in Narbonne as a pit stop on your way to Barcelona or Avignon, but this humble Languedoc town is not without its charms. There’s a medieval old town, an art nouveau market hall and the Canal du Midi, a very popular attraction for boating. Narbonne was an important commercial hub in Roman times; visit the Horreum to see the only existing granary of the era, plus the Musée Archeologique has ancient mosaics. Local food specialities include ‘bouchons de Languedoc’, crunchy biscuits made with honey and almonds. It’s also a great place for tasting Corbières wine, which much of the local economy depends on.
