Also called "allure," Chemin de Ronde is a raised protected walkway behind a castle battlement along the coast. Builders devised the round path as a walkway to allow defenders to patrol the tops of ramparts protected by the battlements or a parapet, so they could position themselves to shoot or drop objects on enemies. This romantic walking path offers sweeping panoramic views of the coast and many opportunities to meet locals and association members who care for this ancient trail.

  • You will have great views from this scenic walking path! I walked only part of it (it was a very cold December day), but the sights of the ocean and the city are impressive!
