Mimoyecques, where the stories of Hitler, Kennedy and Hussein meet ! As an underground launch site, the Mimoyecques' Fortress is one of the most impressive edifices imagined by Hitler. Located a few kilometers from the site of "Deux-caps", in Landrethun-le-Nord, at locality of "Mimoyecques", this secret base was expected to be used for the installation of the giant underground V3 super gun. Like other V-weapons, the V3 was foreseen to bomb England, especially London. The Site was shelled by the Royal Air Force, on July 6th 1944 with Tallboy bombs, wich put an end to the grave threat for Londoners. In 2013, La Coupole oversaw the works of the legacy development of this former base for a new historical visit.

The story behind the building is really interesting, although no world rocking events took place here (except the bombardments which rocked the place around a bit). Nothing much to see except some explanatory panels on the walls.

What can I say, it's a tunnel, well with a couple of side tunnels too. There's a few signs up to tell you the history of the place and it is a massive piece of engineering (or was). It needs a fair amount of investment...More
