History says that this ancient medieval fortress was built at the request of the Bishop of Albi, during the 13th century. During the 18th century, this episcopal castle, a magnificent place of summer residence for these men of light, was abandoned (quickly) in favor of another place located in Albi. And since nothing is lost, and everything is transformed, these gentlemen will dismantle the monument to build others... And today, the result is there: pretty remains and pretty views!

Goryokaku Fortress

Goryōkaku (五稜郭) (literally, 'five-point fort') is a star fort in the Japanese city of Hakodate on the island of Hokkaido. The fortress was completed in 1866. It was the main fortress of the short-lived Republic of Ezo.

Goryōkaku was designed in 1855 by Takeda Ayasaburō and Jules Brunet. Their plans was based on the work of the French architect Vauban. The fortress was completed in 1866, two years before the collapse of the Tokugawa Shogunate. It is shaped like a five-pointed star. This allowed for greater numbers of gun emplacements on its walls than a traditional Japanese fortress, and reduced the number of blind spots where a cannon could not fire.

The fort was built by the Tokugawa shogunate to protect the Tsugaru Strait against a possible invasion by the Meiji government.

Goryōkaku is famous as the site of the last battle of the Boshin War.
