Next to the former Hôtel d’Artillerie, Duchesne Tower forms part of the defensive wall that was rebuilt in the 15th century and extends as far as the Portes Mordelaises. The site’s ancient past was revealed by the discovery of a piece of the Gallo-Roman wall built in the third century to protect this part of the city.
