Take a walk around the walls look at this impressive gateway, still in use as a road. Commands great views of the town below and countryside beyond.

We parked the car in front of the city gate. Once passed the gate, you are in the Middle Ages. The view from the walls is amazing.

Another of the medieval entrances to the old town, it simply doesnt get any better than this, and whats more the medieval town walls are free to explore.

This is one of the key sites in Laon. So picturesque you almost forget it's authentic. It is one of the many historic features which require visitors to allow sufficient time to fully appreciate the city.
