In the chateau of Selles-sur-Cher, medieval military architecture is still to be seen everywhere.
This is clearly visible from the gate. On the left, at the southern angle, is the tower of the coq which remains from the 13th century. One can clearly see the defensive holes in the wall to the east of the tower, and the latrines very visible on the northwest side.
This tower was part of a defense system of 9 towers linked by a round walkway called the courtine.
