Video: Tour of Narbonne’s Archbishop’s Palace and its Colourful Indoor Market

During our visit to Narbonne we tour the Archbishop’s Palace, Cathedral and Via Domitia and explore the indoor market. Narbonne was the first town outside of Italy to be colonized by the Romans and grew to be the second largest town in Gaul. Once a coastal port, it prospered until the sea receded in the Middle Ages. It is now eight miles inland. Today Narbonne has a well-restored medieval quarter. The Cathédral St-Just is the tallest cathedral in southern France and is known for its beautiful stained glass and tapestries.
