Adieusiatz,

I have difficulty to find the exact meaning of "aviá" in this Occitan phrase: "que entornejava complètament lo chastèl, aviá tres pòrtas". As far as I get, it says: "that completely surrounds the castle, aviá [via? through?] three harbors".

Mercè d'avanca

    It just means had (imperfect indicative of the verb aver "to have").

    A fortified castle on a hill in the Ardèche does not have harbors… Pòrta means "door" or "gate".
