History[edit]

The arrondissement of Limoux was created in 1800.[4] At the January 2017 reorganization of the arrondissements of Aude, it lost seven communes to the arrondissement of Carcassonne.[5]

As a result of the reorganisation of the cantons of France which came into effect in 2015, the borders of the cantons are no longer related to the borders of the arrondissements. The cantons of the arrondissement of Limoux were, as of January 2015:[3]

  1. Alaigne
  2. Axat
  3. Belcaire
  4. Chalabre
  5. Couiza
  6. Limoux
  7. Quillan
  8. Saint-Hilaire
