We are now rue Saint-Antoine. Between n°101 and 103 stood one of the most important fortified gates of the wall, heading to Meaux and Sens, two important cities. The medieval rue Saint-Antoine between the Louvre and
this gate is still narrow. Beyond this point, the street becomes much wider as it was later opened across spaces outside the city.
Let's cross the street to take the narrow medieval rue du Prévôt and turn left
onto rue Charlemagne.
Just before the rue des Jardins-Saint-Paul, where are the longest remains of the wall, there is the Montgomery tower. Part of the wall, it gets its name from Gabriel, comte de Montgomery, remembered
for mortally wounding King Henry II in a jousting accident in 1559, in rue Saint-Antoine. For a short time after the accident, he was imprisoned in what became the Montgomery tower.
