The language of the troubadours / La lenga dels trobadors

You are here in Occitan land! The langue d’Oc (language of Oc) finds its origin in Latin and has nurtured the conversations of its inhabitants for many a century. It had its heyday in the days of the troubadours, back when the abbeys of Fontfroide and Lagrasse were wealthy institutions, but also at the time of the Albigensian Crusade.
