You are standing at the foot of the Echauguette Tower, a large defence tower situated on the Fortress’ most exposed corner. Today, its open lower floor appears as if it is suspended seven metres above the moat. This lower level would have housed a small, circular, vaulted room equipped with two arrowslits. A stairway built into the wall led to a middle level which was also accessed by the wall walk. This stairway continued and led up to a rooftop platform, which today no longer exists. Did the tower feature an “échaugette” (corbelled turret), as the name found in a text from 1569 would suggest?
