Suspended gardens

Credit : Collection privée

The suspended gardens existed because of the creation of a bastioned gate built after the visit of Vauban in 1685. This access on the cliff side has required the creation of a path with addition of earth. Terraces supported by small walls were used afterwards as vegetable gardens for the garrison. After 1858, the plots were operated by the owners of inns and guest houses.
