The first walls were constructed between the 3rd and 4th centuries on the bluff overlooking the river Aude. This was doubled in the 13th century with the addition of a castle wall. The building medium was local stone. The construction consisted on 3000 meters of ramparts and 52 towers and barbicans. Fortifications encompassing the entire hill were begun in 1226. The town below was begun in 1248. The walk between the walls is approximately a mile long.
