Espace Vauban à la Citadelle de Besançon

CITADELLE - ESPACE VAUBAN

Four exhibition rooms explore the life and times of Vauban and other important figures and places including Louis XIV, Versailles and Molière. Exhibits retrace the two French conquests of Franche-Comté, the construction of the Citadel and how young aristocratic soldiers in service to the King (the Cadets du Roi) lived here. This journey through time continues with an animated film on the construction and history of the Citadel, "Au coeur d’une Citadelle" (In the Heart of a Citadel). This 10-minute film uses computer-generated images and is broadcast repeatedly throughout the day, complementing the text, illustrations and objects exhibited.
