TOWN PRESENTATION

Entrevaux is located along the Var and the RN202, on the border of the Alpes-Maritimes. Advanced military stronghold of the kingdom of France, the fortified village dominated by its famous Citadel, earned him the title of Vauban city.

Access to the historic city is by the Porte Royale and its impressive drawbridge.

You undoubtedly fall under the spell of this beautiful village rich with history to suit your wanderings in the streets.

Just outside the pass line of the famous railway train Pignes, between Nice and Digne-les-Bains. This connection (opened in 1911), in a natural beauty, is taken by about 500,000 passengers per year!


SIGHTSEEING

Citadel Entrevaux:

Vauban wanted impregnable: it never came. The citadel, however, begins to engage the public ....

Of the magazine to the very contemporary prison cells, you can imagine what life in the fortress. Further, you indignant of the fate of enemies, who, despite the altitude and the hostility of the site, managed to infiltrate it.

The castle and the half-mile ramp leading to it are indeed built on the side of stone on a narrow rocky outcrop, and encircled by the river Var.

The site, thus isolated, is literally extraordinary. Expect great views over the medieval village of Entrevaux well as all around.

The citadel is open to the public daily non-stop.
