Mont-Dauphin Citadel

Recommended
One of Vauban's greatest works, the town is striking for the breadth of its streets and grid pattern; everything here has a defensive function... Visiting the citadel reveals the quality of its architecture: from the gunpowder store with its well-preserved larchwood ceiling, to the arsenal where artillery pieces were kept, not forgetting the extraodinary 260m-long Rochambeau barracks above the Guil gorge.
