The castle is the town’s oldest monument, and overlooks one of the largest roadsteads in the world, a highly strategic location. Considering that it’s been use for 1700 straight years (the Romans erected the first defences here in 3rd century AD), it can effectively be called the world’s oldest castle. Look closely at its architecture, and you’ll spot a flow of changing styles – a result of the fortification constantly adapting to possible threats from the sea and land. Read up on its long and extensive history if you can! You can walk the walls of the castle for wonderful vies of the harbour and the city.

Today, the castle houses one of the five French maritime museums. Like the others, it has an extensive collection of model ships, sea instruments, weapons, paintings, sculptures and art.
