Château d'If

Recommended
A fortress built on a 3ha rock, which owes its fame to the time when it was the prison where Alexandre Dumas' heroes were incarcerated. The tour includes video extracts of the misadventures of the Count of Monte Cristo, as shown on the cinema screens. From the terrace, there is a panoramic view over the harbour, the îles du Frioul and the city of Marseille.
