Fort Saint-Andre

★★★☆☆

fort saint-andre

The fortress of Saint-Andre, with the curtain wall, surrounded an abbey and it was built in several stages during the first half of the 14th century. The surviving manuscripts do not allow the construction to be precisely dated.
The fortress was clearly visible from Papal State across the Rhone in the town of Avignon and was intended to demonstrate the power of the Kingdom of France.
