General presentation

One of Vauban’s masterpieces registered as a UNESCO world heritage site, remarkable example of the 17th century military architecture covering nearly 12 hectares, the Citadel of Besançon is considered one of the most beautiful fortress in France. Overhanging more than 100 meters above the old town of the capital of Franche-Comté encircled in a meander of the Doubs river, it gives a spectacular overview from its ramparts.
