The Lieutenance

The Lieutenance

Honfleur, France

The Lieutenance is the last bastion of medieval Honfleur and the last vestige of the ramparts that were destroyed at the end of the 17th-century on the order of Colbert. Over the centuries, the building has undergone many rebuilds. The very first ramparts of the town of Honfleur were erected in the 13th-century. Around 1350, Charles V built a fortress surrounding the harbor as well as the city. The Lieutenance is one of the most significant buildings of Honfleur.
