Visite avec vue : La tour de la Pelote

A medieval gun tower that was part of the fortification programme established by Vauban in the 17th century, the Pelote tower was destroyed by fire in 2013. The exceptional Vauban period framework was lost in the fire. In 2016, a major restoration project enabled the building to regain its architectural authenticity, using traditional techniques and know-how.
In the company of a guide, discover the history of the district, the context of the construction of this tower, as well as the different stages of its restoration. From the first floor you will have a magnificent view of the city.
It’s your turn to discover it!

Full price 8€; 6€ for students, under 18s, member associations, disabled people and their carers; free for jobseekers and children under 12.
