1. Rempart

Show sight on map

The ramparts of Vannes are the fortifications erected between the third and seventeenth centuries to protect the city of Vannes in the department of Morbihan in France. Founded by the Romans at the end of the first century BC. Under the reign of Augustus, the civitas Venetorum was forced to protect itself behind a castrum at the end of the third century, even as a major crisis shook the Roman Empire. This first enclosure remained the only protection of the city for more than a millennium. It was at the time of Duke John IV, at the end of the fourteenth century, that the city wall was rebuilt and extended to the south to protect the new districts. The duke wanted to make Vannes not only a place of residence but also a stronghold on which he could rely in case of conflict. The area of the intramural city is doubled and the duke adds to the new enclosure his fortress of Hermine.
