Vienne

The medieval Pipet Fortress is built on Mt. Pipet, a hill that overlooks the town and river. It once was owned by the Kings of Burgundy; later, in the 1600s, its fortifications were largely torn down in the aftermath of France's Wars of Religion. It has been a shrine to the Virgin Mary since the 19th Century..
