Image Description: The castle in the Romanesque Era During the early years of the 12th century, Viscount Bernard Aton Trencavel began the construction of a new residence to replace the original viscounts' castle traditionally said to have stood on the site of the towers at the Narbonnaise Gate. The so-called "palatium" was erected at the western end of the spur of rock, backing onto the old town walls and three of its towers, the Chapel, Powder and Pint Towers. The height of these towers was then increased. The castle included two buildings dominated by a square keep. One building lay on the west side; the other was set at right angles to it and was east-facing. At that time, it had only one storey topped by crenelated battlements, traces of which can still be seen in the masonry.
