The Citadel is located in Halifax, Nova Scotia Canada and was built, believe it or not, to protect the city and surrounding area from an attack from the United States. At least that's what the Parks Canada website says (and so do the tour guides). It was never attacked. The Citadel was built into a hill, so that basically the entire fort is below ground level. Made it very difficult to attack when this, the fourth rendition of the fort, was completed in 1856.
