The Bourg district
This was a major trading post in Narbonne in the Middle Ages thanks to its garment industry, but it is now the epicentre of an exciting renovation and business rehabilitation project. Set on the right bank of the Canal de la Robine (formerly the River Aude), once occupied by both the middle-class and workers, it is now home to numerous artisans who find these buildings an ideal showcase for their creations...
Head to the Four Fountains district and enjoy a warm welcome at their workshops: leatherworkers, ceramists, jewellers, upholsterers... Not to mention all the restaurant owners, coffee roasters and clothing designers who keep the district lively!
The Cité district
The seat of the city in Roman times and a stronghold of the nobility and high clergy in the Middle Ages, the pedestrian streets in the heart of the old quarter are now "the" shopping district!
Via Domitia, on the Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, is your starting point for shopping in Narbonne! Indeed, Droite, de l'Ancien courrier, Jean Jaurès and the Cours de la république streets are full of all kinds of fascinating shops: concept stores, major brands, bookshops, local products...! A magnet for fashion addicts and lovers of quality products!
Groups of young people, restaurants occupied by groups of friends, happy reunions; there's a fun atmosphere in the bars and restaurants where you can get some refreshment and grab a bite while you show off your latest buys to your friends.
Pont des Marchands street (The Merchants' Bridge) is partially closed for works until 2024! Most of the traffic under and on the bridge is prohibited.
"Le Pont des Marchands"(The Merchants' Bridge)
Pont des marchands street, one of two inhabited bridges in France, spans the Canal de la Robine and is a historical link between the left and right banks! And as its name suggests, the street is also a shopper’s paradise!
But that's not all! Some stores also offer breathtaking views of the Canal. After all, it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site!
