[Le Bishop's Palace]

Le nom du palais vient de l'occitan bisbia signifiant "?v?che", r?f?rence ? sa fonction de ridence episcopale. Le b?timent fut eng? entre le XIIIe et le XIVe si?cle et connut quelque modifications jusqu'au XVIIe si?cle. Il forme avec la cath?drale un ensemble monumental de briques exceptionnal. Cette architecture militaire t?moigne de la volonte de l'?v?que d'affirmer sa puissance et son autorit? en r?ponse ? la dissidence cathare. Les nombreux contreforts h?micylindrique, les ?normes tours et l'?paisseur des murs manifestent un type de d?fense passive, fond?e sur la hauteur et sur la masse.

[Translated by Google Translate (with modifications):
Palace Berbie
The name of the palace comes from the Occitan bisbia meaning "bishopric", a reference to its function as Episcopal residence. The building was built between the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries and underwent some modifications until the seventeenth century. It forms, with the cathedral, a monumental assemble of exceptional brick. This military architecture reflects the will of the bishop to assert its power and authority in response to the Cathar dissent. Its many hemi-cylindrical buttresses, the enormous towers and thick walls show a kind of passive defense, based on the height and mass.]
