THE RAMPARTS

Magnificent views. The city was protected from the late Roman Empire by the walls that were rebuilt and enlarged in the Middle Ages, and again reinforced in the late 16th and 17th centuries. Become useless, they have been arased and the gates of the city destroyed in the 18th century to allow the city to expand outside its walls. The Beaulieu rampart was the first to be fitted for a walk. From here the views of the Charente are very pleasant.
