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.

I always thought that the treatment of the good people of Calais in the medieval wars with France was despicable...

Incredible photo - gives me vertigo!!

You mean the thing with the burghers?

I caught a fleeting glimpse of Rodin's monument to them as we fleeted past the town hall.

Calais has been in the front line of a lot of wars.
