  • The visit of the Citadel is interesting historically (Napoleon, resistance, etc.) but also visually to admire the Valley and geological formations. The number of information boards is quite reduced and videos dated (even if you like Jean-Claude Brialy...). In summer, the tour requires a minimum of physical condition.

  • Beautiful landscape.... Amazing church ...flea market...lovely hand made stuff..
  • Great views from this historic fortification. Lots of steps to climb!
  • Lively place worth visiting. Great views!
  • An historical and amazing place .. full of history there and an incredible view all around.
  • Offering great views up and down the valley and of the town of Sisteron. The main attraction is the fortification itself. You get impressive access to most of the site. There isn't a large amount of other things to see inside, a few old photos and paints of the town and citadel over the years.
