[The House of the Chain/The Gate of the Chain]La Maison de la Cadene
La Porte de la Cadene
Post?rieure aux 6 portes Romanes de remparts ext?rieurs, cette arcade ogivale gothique ?tait l'unique port de l'enceinte fortifi?e int?rieure. Son nom viendrait du latin CATENA (cha?ne) et laisse supposer que la circulation entre ville basse et ville haute ?tait contr?l?e au moyen d'une cha?ne qui barrait la rue.
[English translation by Google Translate, with modifications:
The House of Chain
A charter from 1291 ceded to Guillaume Renaud of the Cadene a location at the port of the same name.. The Gothic house built there was replaced in the early sixteenth century by a half-timber house, today called House of Cad?ne.
The Gate of the Chain
Behind the six gates of the Romanesque outer walls, the Gothic ogival [?] arch was the only port of the walled interior. Its name comes from the Latin CATENA (chain) and suggests that the movement between lower town and upper town was controlled by means of a chain that blocked the street.
