The Château Comtal was built in the 12th century by the Trencavels, Vicomtes de Carcassonne.  It was modified many times during the following centuries.  The entrance is protected by a barbican.  To the right of the gate reconstructed wooden hourds on top of the wall allow soldiers to throw missiles at an enemy.  Inside the gate there is a large courtyard.  A large L shaped building begins and continues to the inner wall.  The Chateau has become a museum.
