La Fontaine de Neptune

Place Carnot is the main square in the centre of La Bastide in Carcassonne. It is a favoured meeting place and at its centre stands the grand Neptune Fountain, a work in marble completed by the Italian father and son Barata in 1771.

Since medieval times, the square has housed Carcassonne’s main market, the fruit and vegetable market now held each Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings.
