Formerly called Montesquieu-sur-le-canal, this village was born around the feudal castle at the beginning of the 10th century and has a turbulent past. In the 13th century, Montesquieu-Lauragais suffered looting and fires led by Simon de Montfort during his crusade against the Cathars. Occupied by Protestants during the religious wars, Montesquieu was besieged, looted and burned by the Duke of Joyeuse in 1586.

The bastide was once protected by ramparts and ditches, the layout of which can be guessed by walking through the streets. The Gothic church (1600) has a beautiful 5-bay bell tower wall overlooking the plain.

Crossed by the Canal du Midi, the town houses the interesting Négra lock.
