    This construction was built in 1646. It serves as a reminder of a famous knights' tournament, 'Le Pas d'Armes de la Bergère', which was organised by King René and held on the island of Jarnègues in 1449. The branches of the Rhône flowed as far as this district for centuries. It was from here that the boats left, carrying goods and men, and for trading purposes. It is the town's only secondary gate.
