It is northern France’s best conserved fortified site. The ramparts were built
between 1227 and 1231 by County Philippe Hurepel, son of king Philippe Augustus.
These medieval fortifications are sited on top of earlier walls which were part
of the Roman naval base known as “Classis Britannica.” The four gates which
have barely changed since ancient times
provide access into the old town. They also open the way to steps onto
the watchman’s way along the top of the walls. A tour along the path makes a
delightful walk with stunning views over the city and the flowers in the park
below the walls.
