Put up above the Ramp defences in 1631 as a banqueting hall; the basement has a Caponnière (a passageway with embrasures for defending the stairway); rebuilt as an armoury after the fire of 1816.
All adults and children will find something of interest on our 9.5 ha large fortress. You should plan at least two hours for a tour of the fortress. During a guided tour you will also be able to access the 400-year old lower basement and the underground casemates.
Casemate - ital. casa matta (covered house) – cannon-proof fortress rooms.
