Address Château Comtal 11000 Carcassonne, France

The Comtal castle of Carcassonne is an essential monument of the city. A vestige of the feudal power overhanging the city…

Having begun its construction around 1130 by Bernard Aton IV Trencavel, the Comtal castle had for first objective to replace an old primitive castle.

Over the years, the castle will be enriched with the arrival of new monuments. But when it falls in the royal domain between 1228 and 1239, it will be completely reshaped to become a real fortress.

The place will be used as such until 1659, when the Treaty of the Pyrenees is signed. It was then abandoned until the 19th century when a restoration project was started.

Today, it is one of the places not to be missed in the Aude.
