  Inside D'Amboise Gate
by steventilly
 
 

Here's one of the defensive tunnels beyond D'Amboise Gate. There's a series of tunnels, each leading out to an exposed area with turns, so the enemy couldn't get a straight run, and danger would be around every corner for them.
In the roofs of the tunnels are holes - you can only imagine what used to rain down those holes onto the heads of attackers. For one thing, the huge stone balls that you see strewn about the place!
