Artist's Description

llefranche-de-Conflent is an exceptionally good preserved fortification from the Middle Ages.

It was built in 1090 on the initiative of the Count Guillaume-Raymond de Cerdagne. The ramparts of Villefranche-de-Conflent kept their original layout and the medieval essence. The ramparts were strengthened by king d’Aragon in the 13th century to use it as an outlying post. But it is Vauban who gave it its actual aspect in the 17th century when six bastions were added. This Vauban was also the men who built the stronghold fort Liberia some meters higher.
