  • 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.

  • The beautiful sunny day, although windy, helped me decide the tour of this small fortress towering the city of Entrevaux. There were no other visitors, so I could take my time, first to reach the Summit along all bends with a leisurely pace, then calmly to dedicate myself full visit of the Citadel. There is room in which it was not, apart from the two/three locks to use utility room equipment. I could see how much it cost to build the sacrifice everything, with appreciations by design. Due thanks to the volunteers who took care over time, even recently, the restoration work. I suggest, for those who can, a visit midweek or in busy periods in order to fully enjoy all the emotions.

  • 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.
  • Breathtaking view of Entrevaux descending from Col de la Feline ! Don't miss it !!!
  • Very nice view
  • Nice fortification from the medieval ages. Quite a steep ascent to walk, 200 in altitude. Very nice view of the valley, otherwise just some ruins.
