The Citadel of Doullens built in 1530 it represents the hybrid of a medieval castle and bastioned fortress. France was repeatedly attacked by the Spaniards by the forces of King Charles V. So as a safety measure King Francis ordered the construction of this strong citadel on the borders. From being a military fortress in the 16th century to being a place of detention in the 17th to a cantonment to store ammunitions and supplies during the world wars and today it’s finally a tourist attraction. Its sandstone architecture gives it a unique status among other French citadels and is known for its strength. Apart for being a tourist spot the place hosts a number of events and competitions like exhibition of vintage cars, ATV motorcycle championship, shooting, music & cultural festivals.

  • Love this place, fab dog walking, well managed. Best time is 12 to 2 when the French are having lunch ( to walk the dog)

  • Found this by luck when passing on holiday. Excellent guided tour from a young lady who is obviously passionate about preserving local history. Wonderful site full of history, military and social. I only hope the local authorities spend money to preserve many parts of it's varied past which are in imminent danger of collapse. Tour costs 6 euros but lasts 90 minutes. Recommended.

  • Closed so only saw outside

  • Très beau lieu chargé d'histoire. Dommage que ce ne soit pas si bien entretenu...

  • Visite au lance pierre ! A déconseiller !! Dommage pour des endroits historiques ! Après on s’etonne que la nouvelle génération ne s’y Intéresse plus
