 History of the Door Cailhau at bordeaux

This is the history of the door cailhau from bordeaux

The Cailhau door Cailhau the door (its name recalls the accumulated stones at his feet by the Garonne which served to ballast the ship), built in the late fifteenth century, was part of the ramparts.

She acted as a triumphal arch and defensive gate.

Gothic-Renaissance (battlements, roofs acute: 35 meters high, skylights, lanterns), it contains a statue of King Charles VIII who won the Battle of Fornovo in 1495.

Today that door takes you to the Saint-Pierre Disrict and the Sainte-Catherine Street.
