Barrage Vauban: a Dam on the River Ill

Barrage Vauban in Strasbourg

Barrage Vauban is a dam designed by Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban, architect of King Louis XIV. The dam was constructed in the 17th century on the river Ill in Strasbourg. It was intended to control the river and to be used as a defense against invading forces. At the summit is a panoramic terrace, from here are beautiful views of the Ponts Couverts and Strasbourg's skyline.

This one surely looks spectacular for a dam. It would certainly make a good backdrop for a picture there.
