Castle of Portes

The Château de Portes is a castle located in Portes (Gard département). It overlooks the Regordane, an ancient avenue used by the pilgrims of Saint-Giles and the Croisés on their way towards the Holy Land The castle is listed as a monument historique by the French Ministry of Culture. The castle has a singular architectural style among castles in Europe because of its 49 degree spurs in the shape of a ship’s bow, which earned the castle its nickname of a vessel in the Cévennes..
