The Sarracen Gate

Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, Ruins and remains, Rampart, Door, 16th C in Ramatuelle

  • It opens in the defensive walls of the village of Ramatuelle formed by the outer perimeter of the houses. It has retained its original appearance.

  • From inside, one still distinguishes the slide of the harrow (or Saracen) and hinges and brackets that were used to support the door with 2 panels which was installed in 1792 during the war against Austria and Prussia.
    From the outside, one can see two stone arms that were used to support a watch tower (watchtower sentry often placed above a door).
