La Main de Massiges

MASSIGES - 45 km from the tourist office


Are you passionate about history and curious to know more about the First World War !? The visit to the Main de Massiges site will undoubtedly fascinate you.

Located east of the Champagne War Front, at the junction of the Argonne War Front, the Main de Massiges represented a strategic point on the Champagne front during the Battle of the Marne in 1915. A veritable natural fortress, all of this chalky tray consists of several high points resembling a left hand.
The whole of the galleries, updated and maintained by the association La Main de Massiges, makes it a high place of tourism of memory and archeology of the Great War.

On a self-guided or guided tour (on request), discover what the daily life of soldiers in the trenches could be like.
