Gate of Pile

Recommended
This gate is a reminder of the time when the city was locked every evening and only Catholics were allowed to remain inside the city walls. At the time a drawbridge (still intact and guarded by a statue of St Blaise, the town's patron saint, who carries a plan of the town in his hand) was drawn up and the gates were locked every evening. The circular turret with an outer door is Renaissance in style (1537). The inner gate (1460) is Gothic and also crowned by a statue of the patron saint (more modern).
