Limoux Carnival in Pictures

Limoux is an old town – population 10,000 – in the Aude department of southwest France, some 25km or 15mi south of Carcassonne.
The Carnival of Limoux was listed in the National Intangible Heritage since June 26, 2013, and is usually recognized as the longest carnival in the world – it lasts 3 month from January to April.
Beside the carnival the town is renowned for its sparkling wine “Blanquette de Limoux” – some say the very ancestor and inspiration of champagne – and for a pepper cake called “pébradous” very much appreciated as aperitif.
