An important town during the Middle Ages, Toul's remarkable 17th century wall, including its four gates, remains intact to this day. This historic town situated in the Meurte-et-Moselle department of France is an increasingly popular stop off for visitors en route to other destinations in the Lorraine region.
The astonishing stone ramparts are Toul's most stunning feature. The exact time of the ramparts' construction is not known, but most likely the fortified town has existed at this spot since the first written history. Today, the impressive ramparts define and enclose the historic old town. Dressed white stone was the building material used to create the ramparts, which stand at more than five metres high.
Several sites of Roman archaeology can be found in the town and many more throughout the surrounding area. Within convenient driving distance (18.5 miles) of the town lies Grand. Originally Roman, this fortified town features a magnificent amphitheatre along with the ancient cult of Apollo temple.
The architecture in the old town is in different levels of decay and heavily influenced by past glories. Also positioned here is a principal Gothic cathedral, but unfortunately the building is in poor condition and restoration activities limited.
