  • Very interesting visit for a period of 1 hour with a competent guide, with a good dose of humor, detailing the history of this fort and the technological advances which he benefited at the time with efficiency. Exceptional views of the landscape if we have the chance of a day without clouds... The only problem may be caused by the parking because busy days it is not easy to park after completing a road to the sometimes tricky to get to St. Agnes - profile

  • Quite a discovery on the Riviera... c is more like the relic that we see in l is from france! Family unguided visit (there is possibility to have a guided tour, but he does call before I think), we got an explanatory doc enough with young children. We route the immense spaces with pleasure with lamp of the phone because all n is not lit but it makes the mysterious visit...! C is really great

  • Come as a group we had asked the curator of a private visit and we were impressed by his knowledge, his way to pass and with humor. In short our group has been captivated by the tour that lasts about an hour and a half. Out of the fort to the left you can admire the landscape mentonais to the Italian border, breathtaking. Also be sure to visit the ruins of the Castle and go up to the Dungeon for a view at 360 °, sublime, but sports ascent!

  • Great panorama from the view point. The exhibition closes for long lunch break so plan ahead before you arrive
  • An extraordinary reward for those reaching the very top of the fort. First, a medieval garden which is delightful, then higher up, the views are amazing. Warning. This is not for the feint hearted. Uneven and rocky steps and a lot of them too, but worth it. If you have time, take lunch in the Saint Yves restaurant. Good, hearty home cooking, and huge portions. Wine and beer are also excellent.
  • Excellent
  • For history lovers or just for the curious, the fort of Saint Agnes is worth a visit. Exciting tour inside this fort underground where it is impregnated as well of life of our elders in the time until military ingenuity. Think cover you, it's cool and wet

  • Beautiful Fenton of the Maginot line, stored optimally, sprawling, housed up to 400 men. Definitely worth the visit, dress well inside it's so cold being completely under a mountain!
