Porte des Ormeaux / Cordes sur Cie - FOWO

105 days ago, 30 views
Fortified ensemble of the XII century including the door of the Jane and the door of the Ormeaux. The door of Ormeaux is a medieval gate of Cordes-sur-Ciel, a town of Tarn. It is classified as a historical monument since September 7, 1910. It is one of the doors that protected the entrances of the city. Its defensive aspect represents what was best at that time. Subsequently, the use of cannons has lost interest in this type of door, except in this particular case where the inner chamber has been preserved despite the construction of an outer concentric enclosure.
