La Citadelle


The Citadel, built in successive stages from the Middle Ages to the end of the 19th century, served as an "entrenched camp" for the people of Belfort during the 1870 war. Thanks to the Citadel, the town's valiant defenders were able to hold off the siege and maintain their resistance. A place steeped in history that leaves no one indifferent.
