Fort de Conde, Chivres-Val

4.3
Fort de Conde is a fortification of the Séré de Rivières system built in France between 1877 and 1883 to defend the land between Soissons and Laon. Although the fort was obsolete at the start of World War I, its command of strategic ground made it a coveted area throughout the war as it changed hands several times. Following the war, it was abandoned and then purchased by a local community for you to visit. To visit Fort de Conde on your trip to Chivres-Val, use our Chivres-Val trip itinerary planner.

  • Impressive remains but lacks a good story and description to bring it to life in the imagination.
  • Hidden Gem of a history lesson. Travel back to 1880 38 years before the first world way and see how the French defended themselves in the Franco-Prussian war in which it was defeated. It has been under preservation since 1979. Well worth a visit. It's not small so bring walking shoes and a packed lunch
