"Medieval Fortifications" Paris Favorite Tip by mrclay2000
Paris General: 1,809 reviews and 2,160 photos
Favorite thing: Military and architectural students will obviously find much to marvel and amaze in Paris. Paris itself has a small number of medieval castles, which is nothing more than a fortified palace. Defensive techniques that improved over the centuries can be found in cross-like eyelets used by archers, chutes used to pour pitch and fuels on attackers below, and rampart and battlement design that allowed maximum defensive posturing while limiting angles of assault from below.
