The Tower of Loudun
Localization: Loudun - France.
Destination: The Tower.
Ferryman: Secret society.
Status: Possible opening.
The assumption of the Tower of Loudun, very recently revealed, is of a very particular interest because it brings an additional element to a certain category of old Passages related to the wars of religion. The testimony which accompanies this assumption is very revealing about this subject.

At the reading of this testimony, one does not fail to submit the relationship between this assumption and others like the Palace of Ysle and the castle of Montsegur. This revelation is an additional stone to the increasingly widespread theory according to which former brotherhoods would have been the guardians of Passages towards the Obscur world.
