Visite guidée

The portcullis tower


There was usually just one portcullis in each village because ferrous metals were extremely expensive at that time and this tower, with its drawbridge, formed the main entrance to the village. The gate (called the Gate of the Alps) dates back to 1670, when it was repaired and adorned with the coat of arms of the town and those of the King of France.
