Description

A city and its defences.

In the third century, the city of Vannes, called Darioritum, acquires the right to fortify. Thus, west of the Gallo-Roman city, a castrum was built. During the Middle Ages, the castrum becomes the centre of the city. Extended in the fourteenth century, it is reinforced in the fifteenth century. Over the following two centuries, the ramparts are modernised with the construction of the Garenne buttress.
