The Occitanie has a great historical past, first settled by the Romans many other conquerors came and settled in the area. Everyone from Hannibal to the Visigoth´s left their mark on the area. This is the land of the Cathars, the religious sect wiped out by Pope Innocent III. You will see Cathars names on signs everywhere. For part of it´s history the Languedoc was part of Spain, and is still known sometimes as Catalan France, many of the people of the Languedoc have Spanish ancestry.
