  • Star shaped Citadel - Louis IXV, the Sun King, having just conquered the town of Lille, wished to fortify it with a citadel. He commissioned Sebastien Leprestre, Marquis of Vauban, to build it just outside Vieux Lille. It was constructed with an impressive speed in just three years between 1667 and 1670 and remains the largest and the best preserved citadel in France. Construction of this amazing fortification proved to be quite a feat involving 3 million concrete blocks, 60 million newly baked bricks and the efforts of 2000 men. Certainly worth a visit although only open to the public on Sundays.
