At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

Nature, history.

Built by Vauban between 1674 and 1711, this famed Citadel does more than offer a nice view of Besançon; it is the very soul, the distinguishing factor, the signature and flourish of this beautiful city. It is a military structure if it is anything, yet today it has much value as a popular and profitable museum.

Aside the activity of the Museum of Natural History with its zoological gardens, aquarium, insectarium and "noctarium" (dedicated to nocturnal creatures) are also well worth a visit. In addition, the citadel is also home to a regional ethnographic collections which are among the finest in France, and it also houses the Museum of Resistance and Deportation which is dedicated to the tragic history of the wars of the 20th century.

Vauban's Citadel has been listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site since July 2008.
