Vannes ramparts are the fortifications erected between the 3rd and 17th centuries to protect the city of Vannes in the department of Morbihan in France. Founded by the Romans at the end of the 1st century BC. Under the reign of Augustus, Civitas Venetorum was forced to protect itself behind a castrum at the end of the 3rd century, even though a major crisis shakes up the Roman Empire. This first enclosure remains the only protection of the city for more than a millennium. It was at the time of Duke Jean IV, at the end of the 14th century, that the city enclosure was rebuilt and extended south to protect the new districts. The Duke wants to make valves not only a place of residence but also a strong place on which he can rely in the event of conflict. The area of the intramural city is doubled and the Duke assistant to the new enclosure his fortress of the ermine.
