4.2
Guise is a commune in the Aisne department in Hauts-de-France in northern France.SightsThe ruins of the medieval castle of Guise, seat of the Dukes of Guise, are located in the commune.EconomyGuise is the agricultural centre of the northern area of Aisne.MiscellaneousGuise was the birthplace of Camille Desmoulins (1760–1794), a journalist and politician who played an important part in the French Revolution.Over a period of 20 years, beginning about 1856, Jean-Baptiste Godin built Le Familistère (the Social Palace), an industrial and communal residential complex that was a separate community within Guise. It expressed many of his ideas about developing social sympathy through improved housing and services for workers and their families, influenced by the ideas of the philosopher Charles Fourier. In 1880 Godin created a cooperative association by which the workers owned and managed the complex. This continued until 1968.On the 29th of August 1914 the Battle of St. Quentin (1914) was fought in and around the town. A memorial in Guise celebrates this event.
