The Essential Sights to See in Narbonne, France, Narbonne, France (B)

The South of France really is the region that keeps on giving thanks to towns like Narbonne. Just back from France’s Mediterranean coast, the town is another gem in Occitanie that’s not yet overrun by tourists. And it’s not like there aren’t plenty of sights to see in Narbonne either.
