  • Inside this old castle there's a museum that hardly ever changes its collection: interesting, but not stunning. You can also climb a tower that gives you a beautiful view of the bay, the city and its ...  more »
  • After a pleasant climb slightly, but de Villiers went on To Cannes. Very nice views of the city. Took me hours to centuries ago at the Fort. Because it looks all over the town. So it's time for people to learn centuries ago in Cannes to the Castle they were looking at.

  • Worth the Climb! This is a must for a trip to Cannes. You can see all of Cannes and Mandelieu. I kind of walked quickly through the museum because I prefer to have a view.
  • Best view in Cannes by far! Amazing scenery from the watchtower inside the museum. You can see the watchtower from anywhere in the city & when you climb to the tower's summit, you have a full panoramic view of Cannes. Fabulous! If you are 25 ans or younger, you can get in for only 3 euros! Amazing! And the museum is pretty cool too.
  • A bit of a walk uphill, but the views are breathtaking! A few interesting pieces in the museum, but the true gem on display is the 360 degree view of the city and coastline from the top of the tower. Definitely not to be missed
  • Warto odwiedzić dla widoku z wieży !
  • Despite the unprepossessing name, you have nothing to worry about gentlemen, you will not be relieved of your precious family jewels.
