Close to the Covered Bridges, this building, built around 1690 by Tarade, made it possible to flood the entire southern front of the city to face a possible enemy assault. Around 1880 the German authorities raised the building by one floor to cover it with earth and grass. Straddling the river Ill, this historic monument is today a place to stroll, appreciated for its panoramic terrace built by the city of Strasbourg in 1966 at the top of the building. It offers an incredible and unobstructed view of the Petite France district and its canals. The "tunnel" that runs right through it is an original walk between reproductions of the cathedral's sculptures.
