  1. History of the castle
  2. Photo Gallery

Like the major part of the castles of Corbières, Puilaurens was rebuilt after the multiple punitive forwardings carried out by the knights of north against Cathares. Its geographical situation at the border between the kingdoms of France and Aragon well quickly attracted the interest of monarchy capétienne. Louis IX (death in 1270) and Philippe III the Bold one (death in 1285) are at the origin of the majority of still visible installations.
