THE FORT DU VIEUX CANTON IN VILLEY-SAINT-ETIENNE

Witness to a new generation of works, the defensive organization of the forest of Villey-Saint-Etienne presents the ultimate evolution of this fortification. This defense revolves around the Fort du Vieux Canton, the only modern fort on the Place de Toul, built in reinforced concrete. The forest of Villey-Saint-Etienne is a veritable conservatory of fortifications.

Patiently cleared of vegetation, the site now offers a pleasant walk on a marked and well-informed route. Panels and leaflets allow discovery at your leisure.
