Cistern at Fort Jacques

Cistern to collect rain water of the battlements. The inner courtyard was mostly covered with a wooden roof. (The sockets for the beams can still be seen in the walls.) The blocked door is said to have been the magazine. See the picture of the vault for an idea of the interior.

other sizes: small medium large original auto
