Limoux is a pleasant city on the River Aude just 25 km south of Carcassonne, France. The city has two famous old cathedrals -
St. Martin in the heart of the old city and Notre Dame de Marseille on the outskirts of town. St. Martin war originally
built in the 12th century and mostly rebuilt in the 14th and 15th centuries. The city also has the ancient Pont Neuf for
crossing the River Aude, dating to the 14th century. This page focuses primarily on the Cathedral of St. Martin and its
many interesting gargoyles, as well as the Pont Neuf and the center of the city. The area around the Place de Republique
is a popular place for lunch, dinner, or drinks with many sidewalk cafes and restaurants.
