Porte de Brisach

Interesting
Built by Vauban in 1687, this gate has a large columned pediment and unabashedly brandishes its fleur-de-lys coat of arms with a sun above it and Louis XIV's famous motto Nec pluribus impar. From the promenade des courtines, you can see the double ring of fortifications designed by Vauban.
