Narbonne has a few cool things; an old river, a fortified chateau and a medieval cathedral. Most of which were scattered around a central plaza where there was a strange monument.
Apparently about a century ago there was a really good grape season in the area, the best they had ever seen. But instead of prospering, wine prices dove and everyone started fighting where it came to a head in this very square in Narbonne. Quite a few people were killed as a result of the riots. Geez, heaven forbid they have a good season again!
The cathedral St-Just et St-Pasteur was only semi built as it had been built on and off for centuries. None-the-less, the church was insanely tall inside and was very mystifying.
