Fort de Corbas

Fort de Corbas ©
Used by the Interior Ministry, the fort cannot be visited. It is the only fort with a rotating turret, a Mougin turret for two 155 L cannons. It covers 10 ha and was built in 1872 to the south-east of the square at an altitude of 210 m.
Il surveillait les moyens de communication menant à Vienne, Bourgoin-Jallieu, la Côte St André et Givors. Il protégeait aussi les intervalles entre les forts de St-Priest et de Feyzin. Le fort a reçu, dès sa construction, avant la crise de l’obus torpille, une utilisation massive du béton pour ériger les galeries et les murs des fossés.
