Corniche Bonaparte 83500 La Seyne-sur-Mer
Built between 1672 and 1680, then enhanced by Vauban to complete the defence of the harbour.
It is a low battery fort: the windows are at the sea level so as to shoot canon balls that, by ricocheting on the water, would perforate the ships’ hulls.
The fort still belongs to the National Navy.

Open during "Open day in monuments and beautiful buildings" in September or yearly events calendar.

Free admission and free car park
