The Citadel of Alessandria

The Citadel of Alexandria is one of the most impressive European monuments in the context of the permanent fortification of the 18th century, one of the few still existing in Europe. It is the only European fortress still today in its original environmental context: there is no house screen that hides the view of the ramparts, or a long-distance road that surrounds the ditches. In 2014 EUROPA NOSTRA, with its prestigious programme “The 7 Most Endangered”, awarded the Citadel as one of the seven most endangered monuments in Europe.
