    The stones from the ruins of chateau in Pujols, which was destroyed during the French Revolution were sold in 19th century and used to build the prison on the road out of Villeneuve to Monflanquin. Pujols was destroyed after three years of siege during the Albigensian Crusade in 13th century when King Louis and 40,000 of his knights and men came down to southern France to take land for the French crown in 1229. Pujols capitulated after three years; the inhabitants were allowed to leave but the town was raised to the ground. It was rebuilt at the end of 13th century by orders from Alphonse de Poitiers brother of the King of France. Pujols was put under siege because it was associated with the Cathars and it held a Cathar council in the town in 1223.
