A region rich in history

The Haute Marne is an area with a rich vein of history running through it. Many of the most famous figures in France have spent some of their life here, and there are monuments and museums marking these events all within easy reach of the campsite.

Joinville

Camping La Forge de Sainte Marie • Haute-Marne • Champagne

The Auditoire in Joinville is an old court built in 1561, which has preserved, amongst other things, its jail cells and solitary confinements. Guided tours are available and themed shows and events are staged regularly throughout the summer.

Grand

Camping La Forge de Sainte Marie • Haute-Marne • Champagne Camping La Forge de Sainte Marie • Haute-Marne • Champagne

Grand, just a few kilometres from the site, is home to a 1st century Roman Amphitheatre. Only uncovered in 1963, an exact replica has been recreated over the original for its own protection, without losing any of its ancient feel. Themosaic, also in Grand, is considered the greatest of its kind known in Europe. A ‘must see’ on a visit to the area.

Domrémy la Pucelle

Camping La Forge de Sainte Marie • Haute-Marne • Champagne

This village in the neighbouring department of the Vosges, is the birthplace of Joan of Arc, and as such has many monuments and museums in her memory. Among them stands the Basilica, which, when illuminated, towers majestically above the valley of the Meuse.

Fort de Bourlemont

Camping La Forge de Sainte Marie • Haute-Marne • Champagne

This Fort, built in the 19th century, is well worth a visit. It has been left in its original state, and guided tours take you on an historical journey around the many parapets, moats and shooting platforms of the fort.

Cirey-sur-Blaise

Camping La Forge de Sainte Marie • Haute-Marne • Champagne

Chateau Cirey sur Blaise was once the home of the 18th century writer Voltaire, and a trip through the château will give you a great insight into his rather eccentric life.

Colombey les Deux Eglises

One of the focal points of the region, Colombey les Deux Eglises marks the burial place of Charles De Gaulle. The monument can be seen for miles around, a sign of the respect paid towards him by the French people.

Verdun

Verdun was a major fighting ground during World War 1. The many military cemeteries show the scale of what happened, and the museums tell the story. About a 90-minute drive from the site.

Brienne le Château

In the 18th century, Napoleon Bonaparte spent 5 years at a french military school in Brienne le Château. A tour of the school, now a museum, will take you back to the time of Napoleon’s stay.
