Historians believe that the castle was dismantled at the end of the 17th century on the orders from the French marshal Vauban who initiated the campaign for the demolition of the old military fortifications, which could serve as a rebellion’s haven after the conclusion of the Treaty of the Pyrenees.
The castle ruins passed into private hands after the French Revolution and then Evol mayor’s office purchased it for possible recovery in 1990.
