La Tour Carrée et son jardin d’inspiration médiévale


The Tour Carrée was built in the XNUMXth century and offers an exceptional panorama over the town of Loudun and its surroundings.
It is the only element of a fortress that survived the dismantling ordered during the reign of Louis XIII.

At its foot, a medieval-inspired garden has been installed and includes many medicinal plants.
