D’Embarrère Gate – Castle Ramp

Credit : Collection Musée Pyrénéen

This was originally probably a major gate tower because it led directly to the northern point of the “rue du Bourg”, and above all to the horse ramp leading to the fortified castle. The entrance of the castle ramp had probably its own system of gate tower, or of small entrance castle. In 1810, this entrance to the city was destroyed on request of the Dauzat-d’Embarrère family.
