In the heart of the city of Carcassonne, La Cité!

In February 1231, Gregory IX published the constitution Excommunicamus, which prescribed life imprisonment for penitent heretics and the death penalty for stubborn heretics ... Usually, inquisitors were chosen from the new religious orders, Dominican and Franciscan. Exhibition of the sayings of the Inquisition Tower, instruments of torture of the French and Spanish Inquisitions. History and comparison of Catharism from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Musée de l'inquisition - Carcassonne
History buffs and the curious will cross the threshold of this museum (in two separate buildings) in the heart of the City. Also named "Museum of Torture" to be more explicit, we advise sensitive souls to refrain! Not only will you get a glimpse of the instruments of torture dating from the 12th century up to the French Revolution, but you will also see scenes of torture recreated with mannequins in period costumes.
  Torture room, prisoner cell, animations, engravings and instruments of torture of the Inquisition show all the genius deployed by the torturers to subdue heretics. The torture equipment is put into realistic situations and a tour full of true stories is offered to visitors... We therefore advise you not to bring your cherubs, unless you blindfold them to let them admire on the second floor illuminated models of the main castles of the Cathar country. 
Musée de l'inquisition - Carcassonne
The visit is not guided but many small posters explain the instruments and the context of their use. If you take the time to read the explanations, count between 40 min and 1 hour maximum for the visit. Please note: every month the museum welcomes new instruments of torture used by the Inquisition against the Cathars, one of them is particularly presented and explained.

Les Chasses au Trésor: malediction, mysteries and magic cards... Discover the region in a fun way and visit unusual or unmissable places thanks to a treasure hunt in the form of a box containing a magic card, mirror and / or other surprising clues.

We will have warned you... How it works ? It's very simple! ​ Buy a “treasure hunters” box in one of the points of sale (often the town's tourist office).

Our course last on average 1h30 but you are free to do it at your own pace. At the end of the adventure, remember to return to the tourist office (pay attention to the schedules) to collect your reward: the one, the real, the only treasure hunter badge to collect...
