  • It is a good place for pictures. We could not enter in there but outside it is also beautiful, you can enjoy it. 
  • The Citadel is very impressive, views from walls-half of Provence. Inside all perfectly preserved or masterfully restored. The children really enjoy going there. Town walls the authentic and cosy.

  • Visit the Sunday 06/11/2016. Absolutely nobody. The Citadel for 6 people. A wonderful view. A fully open Citadel. Great for strolling. We walk, we discover, it is surprising and marveled. A true moment of solitude. Caution to the wind. Provided for warm clothes.

  • 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.
  • I have already visited a lot of these sort of monumental places but this one is a stunning site. Breathtaking views!!!
  • Its a pretty steep climb, but worth it! Great views on top of a grand history lesson.
  • Extremely good views over the landscape in both directions, north and south. Nothing much to see within the walls.
  • Picturesque and panoramique.
