Fort Saint-Sébastien

Fort San Sebastián was a fort used to train Louis XIV's armies in poliorcetics. Located in a bend of the Seine, in the alluvial plain of Achères north of the forest of Saint-Germain-en-Laye and about twenty kilometres north-west of Paris, this fort had a brief existence. Built in 1669 and extensively modified and enlarged in 1670, it could accommodate between 15,000 and 20,000 men and several thousand horses. After the departure of the royal troops for the war, the site was levelled in 1671 and reassigned to cultivation that same year. Its location still appears on the Plan of the forest of Laye [...] and of all that is contained in this cove of the Seine river by Nicolas de Fer dated 1705, with the inscription: "Place where the fort called Saint-Sébastien was built in 1670".
