Returning after twenty years : Carcassonne

My first article was published 20 years ago, since that time I never made it back - until now that is.

Here are my impressions of my visit in 2017 :

It feels different, Carcassonne has been turned into a Tourist trap.

It still is exciting but it now has the flair of a Tourist trap, not alike what I saw the first time.

Sad, but these are modern times. To maintain the old buildings the city has to generate income.
