    It is the last tower of the medieval wall which, in its heyday, was 1,500 meters long and was flanked by 28 towers and 12 gates. In the 19th century the wall was destroyed so that the new Périgueux could expand. From the top of the Mataguerre tower you have some essential views of the things to see in Périgueux.
