View of the Porte Poterne (English: Postern Gate) from Rue Porte Poterne in the Breton town of Vannes. The gate was opened in the city walls in the 17th century to facilitate increasing traffic as the population grew. In 1922 the gate was extended upwards to make it easier for larger vehicles to pass through.
Vannes is a tourist attraction because of its medieval heritage, including its well-preserved city walls.
