Dartmouth Castle : Michelin's recommendations

The fort was begun in 1481 by the merchants of Dartmouth to protect their homes and deep-water anchorage and modified in the 16 and 18C. It commands excellent views of the sea and the estuary. It was the first castle in England to have been designed for the use of guns as the main armament. The gun ports are splayed on the inside to allow a sweeping view without an enlarged opening.
