Notes:

The fourth attraction of Nevers, the high square gateway tower known as the Porte du Croux, may also be bregarded as a relic of feudal days, seeing that it dates from 1398, and was evidently part of the town’s defences. It is a noble specimen of mediƦval defence, a tall gateway tower, protected, like the Porte Guillaume at Chartres, by its ancient fosse—long lancet openings running up above a low round archway and two pointed turrets flanking the hatchet-shaped central roof, with the treacherous line of machicolation below.” (p. 243)

Looks like a castle tower to me.
