Porte d'Auguste

Originally flanked by two towers, this gate has two wide passages for chariots and two narrower ones for pedestrians. The bronze copy of a statue of Augustus gave the gate its name. On the ground, note the line marking the contours of the former castle that it was part of during the Middle Ages.
