La Tour Royale
Situated at the entrance to the harbor, the massive stone fort was completed in 1524 during the reign of Francis I. Despite its formidable size and advantageous location, it was captured by Charles V shortly after it was finished and has since been a participant in several key moments in French and world history. The Tour Royale was deemed a French Historic Monument in 1947 and became a museum in 2004. It was opened to the public in 2010 and operates yearly from July 1 to October 31.
