The Old City, Carcassonne, France

While touring the castle inside the reconstructed medieval city, I came across a room that housed a collection of weatherbeaten statues. These had previously occupied niches on the outer walls of the castle. A plastic plaque in the centre of the room pompously proclaimed: "These statues seem to cast a knowing eye on the brightly-coloured paintings around them."

Most of the statues were headless.
