Description

From the 15th century onwards, this entrance consisted of 2 towers linked by a wooden structure. A moat and drawbridge reinforced the defensive system. According to the plan drawn up in 1745 by the military engineer Franque, you still had to pass through 2 gates controlled by a bastion to enter the town.The magnificent model, acquired by the Syndicat d'Initiative in 1978 and on display at the Arvo, gives a precise idea of the layout of the town in 1632.Don't miss the old cemetery, created in 1784, where the town's former burgomasters and notables are buried.
