(4.2/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
A beautiful port town in southeastern France, La Citadelle - Museum of maritime history is a former military base, where the main source of income was fishing. This fishing village was liberated from the Second World War early in the twentieth century, following which it became an international resort by the sea. Artists from the French New Wave started rushing into this magnificent town as a result of its rich history and spectacular view. It later became a resort for the European and American jet set and a goal for tourists in search of a little Provençal authenticity and an occasional celebrity sighting.

  • Originally a military Tower (1602), then the walls were erected for defensive purposes. Became highway in 1919, now houses the Musee d'Histoire maritime, where he describes the sea life of the town (history, legends, short stories), and everything about life of fishing and armatures connected to it. Are remembered the historical figures who have made it big Saint Tropez. The Museum focuses on local history, but if one goes by there, deserves to visit. The price is more than fair. Incredible the views from the Tower/Museum. Worth getting up there, just to enjoy the view,

  • Small museum about the history of the Navy very interesting and well designed. The terrace at the top of the Citadel offers a beautiful panorama on the golf and the city of St Tropez.
