A street leading to a small town of stone buildings including a castle and a church. There seemed to be some plate wash in this engraving and i’ve retained that in the digital image, as it added atmosphere.

Most of Fulk Nerra’s castles were rebuilt in the fifteenth century, Durtal among them, but some of his work still remains in the keep. The little town has kept a remarkably old-world aspect, and town and castle together form one of the most picturesque illustrations of the peculiar character stamped on the country by its early counts, especially by Fulk the Black.
