The Fort de Villiers is one of the units on the second outer ring of Paris’ fortified city walls. 

Erected on a terrain of 4 hectares located in Noisy-le-Grand, this structure was designed to protect Paris by the General Séré de Rivieres from 1878 to 1880. 

Originally owned by the Minister of Defense, it housed a military barrack.  From housing shelter to reception area for sporting associations, the fort has served many functions over the years. 

Today, it is owned by the city of Noisy-le-Grand and its purpose is still being defined.
