Portes castle - Tourism in the Gard

Perched on its mountain pass like a sentry since the 11th century, Portes castle once protected the pilgrims who walked along the Régordane Way to Saint-Gilles. Known as the "ship of the Cévennes" because of its spur shaped like a ship's bow, the Portes fortress consists of an "old castle” in the feudal style and a "new castle” in the Renaissance style. As well as discovering these two parts, visitors to this spot can also enjoy a splendid panoramic view of the Cévennes valleys, Mount Lozère and the Alès plain from the platform of the Renaissance fortification.
