They went old school with oildrums and barricades. If you haven’t heard about the gilets jaunes (“yellow vests” after the high visibility vests they are wearing), click on the link below. We were lucky during our vacation, there was one traffic jam on our way back from Nantes, but apart from that we never encountered any problems.

La Reine

La Reine

Vauban called the complex “la Reine des citadelles” (the queen of citadelles) and he should know. 😀 Unfortunately we didn’t know it wouldn’t be possible to actually visit the citadelle. As it is so often the case, the French military uses it. Stupid French military… can’t you at least offer guided tours? But that also explains why one of the best preserved works of Vauban is not listet as a World Heritage Site.
