About this spot
The traboule of the Pink Tower is one of the most remarkable traboules of the district, because of its ocher color, but also of the Tower which adorns it. The most famous resident of the place is none other than King Henri IV, who stayed there for a few days in 1600, during his wedding with Marie de Medici, celebrated less than 300 meters from the Tower, in the Saint Jean cathedral.
