    Abstract

    Presence of Andalusian State in Septimania has been traditionally neglected, with few exceptions, by historiography. In this text, we try to offer a view of the territorial organisation of the Andalusian State at the north of the Pyrenees by means of a line of research, contrasted in Catalunya Vella, that identifies the toponyms derived from palatium with a primitive network of settlements built during the Islamic conquest. The study of documentary and toponymic sources reveals that these toponyms show the guidelines of a logical spread, always concentrated in southern Septimania.
