The Town Wall surrounding the medieval part of Estavayer-le-lac, dates back to the 13th century.

There are four gates that lead into the historic town. We went in through the Porte du chateau Chenaux Camus. On looking up as we were driving through, it looked like the Coat of Arms was painted above, so the Car was stopped, and I took a photo!
Our exit was through another nice old gate, Porte de la Rochette. I also walked and saw another one, the Porte in the Dominican monastery. The one I missed was the Porte de la Thiolleyres.

Address: The historic old town of Estavayer-le-lac
