  • As others have reported the gates were locked to enter. I looked online and the website said that you can only visit if you organize it through the office of tourism.  more »
  • It is beautiful this Fort St. Nicolas.edifie under Louis XIV, it was intended to protect the enemies Marseille, but the guns were (according to stories) headed back to town, fearing an insurrection of Marseille's very rebellious population. The shape of the fort, built speaks Knight Louis Nicolas of was, is very beautiful. If it is already great to see from the outside we look forward to its opening to the public. But trveaux in Marseille, it is well known, can take some time to say a certain time;)

  • Tried 4 days to get in but it seems closed? - Wish they would put a sign at the bottom of the hill! If it was open would be a great view over the harbour  more »

  • It's a Vauban style fort commissioned by Louis XIV. The site is currently under restoration as part of an employability project by the association ACTA VISTA. The site is closed in general except during the heritage days, a weekend a year in the surrounding of the month of September. It's worth the trip!
