Built between 1906 and 1908 from reinforced concrete this defensive military structure was placed high on a hill over the Meuse valley and is one of the most up to date in the sector. It has an eclipse gun turret, armour-plated observation points and bombproof sentry post. The structure was not attacked during the war and now 30 life-sized models of French soldiers from the era represent daily life during the Great War.
