The junction with the Rue des Anciens Fossés du Château is overlooked by a tower, the Tour du Foix, and the Gaston d’Orléans wing, built from dressed stone. The 13C tower has preserved its loopholes, with a broader stirrup-shaped lower slit to facilitate firing in all directions.

The bridge spanning the Loire is the work of Jacques V Gabriel, head of the country’s Department of Civil Engineering in the early 18C. He replaced the medieval bridge situated 80m downstream, washed away in the glacial floods of 1716, as a result of large melting sheets of ice smashing against its piers.
