Château de Gordes

The Château de Gordes, rebuilt in 1525, already existed in 1031. Well preserved and carefully restored, it combines the architecture of the Middle Ages with that of the Renaissance.

The imposing building is strongly defended by large round towers whose machicolation crown supports a terrace for the artillery, the high walls have been pierced with three floors of "renaissance" windows, one can also notice on the walls, the towers and the watchtowers, the openings of the fire hydrants judiciously distributed.
