Chateau Gaillard Rampart

Chateau Gaillard Rampart

Les Andelys, Normandy, France

This second rampart is the most original feature of Chateau-Gaillard. The rampart was made of 19 arcs of a circle pierced by arrow slits. The round shape gave less hold to projectiles.

paranoia seems to have motivated the design....what a formidable barrier the walls present..
