The Tower of Constance was built by Louis IX as a military camp in the 13th century, but it was used as a prison for Protestants and political prisoners after the 18th century. The thickness of the wall is six meters, and there are elevators now built. Those who like to climb can climb the spiral staircase inside. The ticket is seven pounds.
Visited Aigues-Mortes, basically to see this beautiful piece of architecture, real fortress was a former prison, climb the rampants to get incredible views of the surrounding countryside
Constance tower is a nice sightseeing point, with a panoramic view from the citadel and all around. It is a fantastic medieval tower.
Beautiful tower, was a women jail for Protestants women in the past. Great view when the weather allows it. There is a lift to access the top for disabled people.
The tower is part of a much larger whole.Nevertheless this building on its own is a magnificent example of a Medieval tower with 20 feet thick walls and a spiral staircase to the top
Very expansive historical place. Electronic translator for non-French speaking visitors. Lots of French history with panoramic views of the sea.
