  • Annually from 2013, my friend and I walk through the Citadel of Entrevaux, whatever the weather! But last year, during the heat wave, it was very hard! Sadly, we found that the work undertaken to repair the finishes of the walls were soon abandoned. Here and there, big blocks of stone and more or less gutted plaster bags hanging around... Too bad. And in the small room of weapons at the entrance, all guns were removed. In addition, tourists have become cheap, it's amazing! How many times have we crossed 4 families (father, mother and two children) go back to the entrance, ostensibly to get out a few euros? Deplorable! Whatever it is, our departure for this year is already scheduled!

  • To access the Citadel you must borrow a paved path of 800 m with a vertical drop of 150 m. Very well renovated, these ramps offer beautiful views over the village of Entrevaux and the surrounding mountains. The Citadel is also undergoing renovation and photos show you the different stages of the work. Nice chapel at the entrance, table orientation ceramic beautiful maze of rooms: enjoy the effort in amount. And the icing on the cake, a nice trail in the forest and an olive grove back down to the village.

  • The view is breathtaking. The rise has foot is good but makes you say that the descent will be sure nicer. At the top of the Citadel, a wonderful view from the room of the Commander on the roofs of the village of Entrevaux. Nice restoration work carried out by an association of volunteers. A big congratulations to them. Roam (enlightened) tunnels in perfect condition, home be very surprising. ... Really a great ballad in the Citadel from the very pretty village of Entrevaux.

  • Beautiful place to visit. The medieval village is very charming. Great place to get local honey and olive oils and experience the local cuisine. Lots to photograph and a magnificent view from the citadel. I definitely recommend this place.
  • Good walk, great views of the surrounding countryside. Doesn't take too long to climb up. Citadel itself is interesting, but could do with more info for tourists, is mostly just a slightly crumbling fort / prison without much to put it in context. Worth a look anyway.
  • I loved seeing the old citadel le and imagining how difficult it must have to live there. Cost 3€ for adults. The views from the top down the valley were amazing.
  • Beautiful medieval village. Must visit.
  • Breathtaking view of Entrevaux descending from Col de la Feline ! Don't miss it !!!
