The castle Comtal

the-castle-comtal

Major witness of the architecture of the strong castles of XIII century, the castle comtal of Boulogne is the work of the count Philippe de Hurepel, wire of the king.

He was built from 1227 to 1231 with the weakest angle of the enclosure. It is the first example of a strong castle built without the traditional keep in Western Europe. Its polygonal plan privileging the turns of angle to the profit of an active defense, will make date in the medieval military architecture.

Supported on the angle of the always visible Roman rampart, the castle kept all its parts; origin in the underground, only level where one can still make the full rotation.

In this splendid building, you will admire the Gothic room of Barbière, the Vault, but also the covered way like good d' other vestiges.
