Fort de Conde, Chivres-Val

4.2
#14 of 18 in Historic Sites in Aisne
Fort de Conde is a fortification of the Séré de Rivières system built in France between 1877 and 1883 to defend the land between Soissons and Laon. Although the fort was obsolete at the start of World War I, its command of strategic ground made it a coveted area throughout the war as it changed hands several times. Following the war, it was abandoned and then purchased by a local community for you to visit.

    We discovered the Condé fort. Surprising! Very well maintained, excellent, explanations sometimes very technical but always interesting. I would have liked more signs, indicating the use of the parts, installed directly in these parts (remember the detailed plan installed at the entrance of some sectors). The guided tour must be very interesting but the visit with the plan allows you to immerse yourself in this construction, which sometimes resembles a maze.

    a very interesting we can really see how they lived and defended inside, to see our children absolutely missing just a movie to explain more about the history of the fort

    Very nice visit family and very attractive with the course of l Riddle. We learn a lot about the way of life of the soldiers and the operation of the fort during the wars. The price of the visit and the shop are very reasonable when we realize the costs of renovation and maintenance of the fort.

    We visited the fort with our 2 boys of 11 and 13 years old, we followed the tour as they were doing the game. A big thank you to our friendly guide who knew the story of the fort and very gently guided our boys when they didn't answer the questions. A place full of history but which has a certain aesthetic. An excellent, brief to advise for the whole family
