La Citadelle - Museum of maritime history, Saint-Tropez

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.

  • Cosy, we feel the love of a job well done, meticulous in the realization of the various scenes and the desire to share a beautiful historical passion. We liked the application to highlight the townspeople, the history of the region, links to the outside of the Citadel and the borders, the report at the time that it is done between the 19th / 20 eme and today (industry, architecture). A museum that goes well beyond the walls of the Citadel. Bravo!

  • During our stay in Saint Tropez, we went up to the Citadel. Life is just splendid not gets to watch the sea and the city again and again. Places soothing being with a baby the museum visit was brief but friendly. To see.

  • Great surprise, located on the heights of the city the Citadel to take beautiful pictures in the height of the city. Count 3 euros per person is really very affordable. The Museum is very well done, elevators are present everywhere it is fine, everything is fun videos of small animations are also present. Not really a good surprise, I recommend it when we pass on St. Tropez, it will take you roll up the sleeves there are two passages a pedestrian with markets and otherwise left by the road but Ditto ca climbs!

  • An interesting museum full of interesting tidbits about French history. There is so much to see that I would recommend reserving half a day to see everything.
  • Good value at just 3 euros. Great view of St tropez from top of citidel. Museum interesting.
  • Positive point: great panoramic view Negative: - 3€ - you can get the exact same view just waking around the citadelle FOR FREE. - they have put hideous statues everywhere, even at some places where you would want to take pictures. Don't waste your money
  • Very interesting and entertaining exhibition on St. Tropez' past. It never was the small fishing village which was discovered by wealthy yacht owners in the 1930ies and 50ies. It had an important shipyard since the 17th century. Over 3,000 vessels were built here. Also submarine cables and torpedos were manufactured at St. Tropez.
  • Spectacular views and very new and interesting museum on Naval history both in and out of the St Tropez area.
