Hardly touched through the ages (it was burned three times, in the 9th century, during the 100 Years War and in 2008), Henri IV used it during the siege of Laon, and it was transformed into an arsenal in 1880.

It should be noted that this site was the subject of an excavation campaign during the year 2021, and that it is now the property of the City of Laon, which has equipped its exterior walls with panels relating the history of the site…
