The Citadel is a fortress built on a mountain top in northern Haiti.  Constructed after the revolution in 1804, its purpose was to defend against any French attempt to retake the former colony.  The Sans-Souci Palace – the former royal residence of King Henri I (Henri Christophe), a historic leader in Haiti’s fight for independence, was built on a hill beneath the Citadel.
