Places of memory to visit in France

France has a strong historical heritage. Places of Memory are places greatly marked by historical events, confrontations, or human dramas. These are places that are sometimes intact, or sometimes marked with a monument of remembrance, where great personalities have passed, where sometimes surprising works of military architecture stand. The memory of the suffering endured is always expressed there, because the common point of all these places is war, the last two world wars, but also those of the 19th century.

Vauban's genius lies in adapting the defenses of a city to its geographical identity. He adapted the ramparts on 2 levels, adds bastions and builds Fort Liberia, making Villefranche a unique defence model.
