At first, the land of Troubadours, former poets of medieval literature, then marked by the development of a christian sect called Cathar, it was a trigger for the terrible crusade organized by the pope and the king of France in the south of France. Carcassonne was twice besieged by the king of France and his vassals, it became a royal property from the 13th century onwards. The city took advantage of the construction of the famous Canal du Midi to enrich itself, but this same Canal du Midi also triggered the detriment of the city which gradually fell into ruins.
