15/33.- Orleans, the White Tower


The 'Tour Blanche' used to be one of the towers in the city walls. These towers were erected in order to defend the city from foreign invaders. In the 15th century the city walls where moved with the extension of the city. From then till recently the "White Tower" was used for residential purposes. Currently the building houses the town's archaeological service.

Not far from this tower, sits the nice Saint-Aignan's Church ...
