The Citadelle Cap-Haitien in Haiti, Haiti

The Citadelle Cap-Haitien in Haiti, Haiti
The Citadelle Laferrière or, Citadelle Henry Christophe, or simply the Citadelle, is a large mountaintop fortress in Nord, Haiti, located on top of the mountain Bonnet a L’Eveque, approximately 27 kilometres south of the city of Cap-Haïtien, 15 kilometres southwest of the Three Bays Protected Area, and 8 kilometres uphill from the town of Milot. It is one of the largest fortresses in the Americas and was designated by the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1982—along with the nearby Sans-Souci Palace. The mountaintop fortress has itself become an icon of Haiti. The Citadel was built by Henri Christophe, a key leader during the Haitian slave rebellion (1791–1804), after Haiti gained independence from France at the beginning of the 19th century.

The colossal physical dimensions of the fortress have made it a Haitian national symbol, featured on currency, stamps, and tourist ministry posters. The fortress walls rise 40 metres from the mountaintop and the entire complex, including cannonball stocks but excluding the surrounding grounds, covers an area of 10,000 square metres. Workers laid the large foundation stones of the fortress directly into the stone of the mountaintop, using a mortar mixture that included quicklime, molasses, and the blood of local cows and goats—and cows hooves that they cooked to a glue and added to the mix to give the mortar added strength and bonding power.

Large cisterns and storehouses in the fortress's interior were designed to store enough food and water for 5,000 defenders for up to one year. The fortress included palace quarters for the king and his family, in the event that they needed to take refuge within its walls. Other facilities included dungeons, bathing quarters, and bakery ovens. Also visible is the tomb of Christophe's brother-in-law, killed when the gunpowder room he was in exploded.

The Citadel's appearance from the trail leading up to its base has been likened to the prow of a great stone ship, jutting out from the mountainside. The structure is angular and assumes different geometric forms based on the viewer's orientation. Some of the angles on the Citadelle were intentionally put there by Christophe to deviate cannonballs if attacked and the Epaulette is a great example of using angles to deviate and deflect shots. Though most of the fortress has no roof as such (the interior top is a latticework of stone walkways), some slanted portions are adorned with bright red tiles. The fortress has been repaired and refurbished several times since its construction, including in the 1980s with help from UNESCO and the World Monuments Fund, though little of it has been replaced and its design remains the same.

Cap Haitien And The Citadelle

La citadelle souterraine de Verdun - Région Lorraine - Le Monument Préféré des Français

La citadelle souterraine de Verdun - Région Lorraine - Le Monument Préféré des Français
Si les massives fortifications extérieures, de l’époque de Vauban notamment, sont bien visibles, le système défensif de Verdun conçu lors de la Première Guerre Mondiale se fait autrement plus discret… Il faut plonger sous terre pour le découvrir !
Deux rois de France, Henri II au XVIe siècle, et Louis XIV au XVIIe, s’attachèrent à fortifier la colline de Verdun. Sous le règne du Roi Soleil, selon les principes de Vauban bien sûr ! Au XIXe siècle, c’est un autre ingénieur militaire, Séré de Rivières, qui poursuivit la tâche. De 1886 à 1893, 4km de galeries furent ainsi profondément creusés dans le sous sol de la citadelle, pour accueillir 2000 hommes et le matériel adapté, en cas d’attaque ! Ce qui arriva le 21 février 1916… Alors que les premiers obus allemands tombaient, la ville souterraine prenait vie. Aujourd’hui, tout au long de la visite dans les galeries, on découvre de fidèles reconstitutions avec mannequins ainsi que des vidéos : bureaux administratifs, immenses dortoirs, boulangerie, cuisines (41 000 rations par jour), espace de détente, infirmerie... rien ne manqua à ce fort militaire enterré qui ne capitula pas devant l’adversaire !

Québec, Changing of the Guard, Citadelle - Canada HD Travel Channel

The Citadelle of Quebec City is the only remaining defense system in North America. Today it hosts a garnison of the Canadian army, nevertheless it can be visited.
During the summer, the changing of the guard in typical British style takes place every day, but never without the mascot of the Canadian Royal 22nd Regiment, Batisse, the Royal Goat with gilded horn protectors. It is a direct descendant of the royal goat herd of Queen Victoria, which was once given to the Queen by the Shah of Persia. The original native country of Batisse was the highland of Tibet. The goat made a peaceful impression, presumably unaware the honor that has been given to it.
......
please read more:


Die Zitadelle von Québec ist Nordamerikas einzige erhaltene Wehranlage. Sie beherbergt auch heute noch eine Garnison der kanadischen Armee, kann aber trotzdem besichtigt werden.
Auch hier finden im Sommer täglich ein Wachwechsel in typisch britischem Stil statt, aber nie ohne das Maskottchen des 22. kanadischen königlichen Regiments, Batisse, ein Ziegenbock mit vergoldeten Hornschützern. Er ist ein direkter Abkömmling des Ziegenbocks der königlichen Herde von Queen Victoria, der der Queen einst vom Schah von Persien geschenkt wurde. Die ursprüngliche Heimat von Batisse war das Hochland von Tibet. Der Ziegenbock machte einen friedlichen Eindruck, aber vermutlich weiß er die Ehre nicht zu schätzen.
