Enceinte Gallo-Romaine du Mans is an enchanting archaic wall. Built towards the end of the 3rd century in the Roman Empire, the entire wall was around 1,300 meters long which included 26 towers. It ran along the Sarthe River, and encompassed the entire Old City for almost 17 centuries. Today, a minimum stretch of 500 meters remain unblemished, and the Roman construction can be seen at its best here. Whether it be the method of construction, or the fact that the wall stands tall without proper foundation, this wonder is magnificent to say the least! Apart from its overwhelming size, one more brilliant thing about it is the colour of its bricks. Its russet colour is so prominent, that the city was once known as the “Red City”! It was declared as a historical monument in the year 1862. Since it is part of the Old City, it is also one of the sites for the Entre Cours et Jardins in Cité Plantagenêt. Another historical marvel of the city, do visit the site!
