Compact Defense

The castle curtain wall is only 112 meters (about 350 feet) long, which makes Avalon one of the smallest castle of the Dauphiné province. 

Its southern front is protected by a "barbican" in which stables were built (as usual, it was impossible to access the castle on horse).

The keep is 26-meter high (about 80 feet) and is toped by a small watch turret. It is the main defensive element of the castle. 

The small bailey is packed with various buildings: the "aula" (the Lord's great hall), the bakery, the wardrobe, the cellar, etc.
