Tour de Fribourg

Rempart ouest inférieur
Sur le Rempart inférieur
1680 Romont

Number 13 of the historical tour

The Fribourg Tower guarded the Fribourg Gate, also known as the Lussy Gate. Round and made from molasse*, it has several gun loops where the firearms of the day were placed. Impeding traffic, the town gates were a hazard when fighting fires. In 1845, the decision was therefore taken to destroy them.

Today, the Tour de Fribourg welcomes an Escape Game in its walls. During one hour, participants must solve riddles to find the key and get out of the tower.

Like many other towns, Romont was not immune to epidemics. At the foot of the hill, the rue de la Maladaire in the Chavannes quarter indicates that a maladerie*, or leprosarium, once stood there.

*Molasse : a soft rock (grains of sand and siliceous sandstone) which comprises a large majority of the local subsoil, used here as a building stone. It is still quarried throughout the region.

*Maladerie : french word for the place where lepers were kept in isolation.
