Calais' Medieval Watchtower [Oct. 20th, 2010|03:31 pm]
Tony Grist
We had lunch on La Place des Armes in Calais- at one end of which is the magnificent 12th century Tour de Guet (watchtower)- which is one of the very few fragments of old Calais to have survived a succession of natural disasters and wars.

It looks very solid and wears its mission of being a sentry well.

The square it sits in is otherwise entirely modern and architecturally undistinguished. I'm guessing it was flattened in WWII.
