A powder keg among the houses

Since 1815, after the Napoleonic period, new land is purchased, which allowed a significant expansion. The powder keg was a danger for centuries for the homes of the neighborhood that surrounded it. After the explosion of 1852 it was transferred, while the arsenal was rebuilt and the production of weapons was maintained both during the First and Second World Wars.
