The Ravelin in Nyborg

21 The Ravelin 

Opposite Lindeallé, on the other side of Vestergade and in the present churchyard, traces may be seen of the ravelin that protected the entrance to the Town Gate. At the time travellers from the direction of Odense had first to pass two drawbridges before they reached the Gate. The ravelin was abolished in 1876.
