. The medieval citadel of Carcassonne, known as the Cité de Carcassonne, is a medieval fortress dating back to the Gallo-Roman period and restored by the theorist and architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc in 1853. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997. The fortified city of Carcassonne consists essentially of a concentric design of two outer walls with 53 towers and barbicans to prevent attack by siege engines. Carcassonne castle itself possesses its own drawbridge and ditch leading to a central keep. The walls of Carcassonne consist of towers built over quite a long period. One section is Roman and is notably different from the medieval walls.
