The walls of 16th-century ran parallel to Northeast bed of the Vienna, then followed westerly boulevard Karl-Marx, Saint-Psalmet Street and the street of the Penitents, and joined the Vienna East along the fence of the convent of the Ursulines. It was already in ruins at the end of the 18th century, only remain today the traces of two towers on the edge of the Vienna. Successive speakers of city. The first fortification could date from the 2nd quarter of the 15th century, as in 1428 Bishop and the chapter, 'co-Lords of Eymoutiers', give the inhabitants a Charter franchise and allow them to surround their city walls, towers and ditches. The second fortification, the expanded scope, can be dated to the second half of the 16th century: its plot, remaining in 1789, was certainly fixed at the end of the 16th century. It had 4 doors: door Psalmet St. to the West, the Saint-Etienne to the South door, door fan to the East and the door Notre-Dame or Porte Neuve to the North.
