Old town Belfort

The old town of Belfort is stunning. These fortifications have been well preserved and look magnificent. Here is one of the fortified towers. The cathedral.
A gate into the fortifications.
Approaching Brisach gate.
A closer look at Brisach gate, note the sun carved in the pediment. It is the emblem of King Louis XIV.What better way to enjoy a warm summer evening!
