The devil would have destroyed its castle in 1295.
The castle was captured by the " Armagnac " in 1444.
During the religious wars, in 1592 the castle was dismantled and Barr partially burned-out.
In 1678, the troops of Louis XIV totally destroyed the city.
In 1944, Barr suffered from the very violent fightings between the Germans and the American forces.
