Castles in Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur

The Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur is better known for its beaches and for the cities of Cannes or Nice rather than for its castles.

Even so, there are some famous castles here, like the case of Chateau d’If, a fortress on the sea, which was used as a prison. The Château d’If was also the place where Alexandre Dumas’s novel, Count of Monte Cristo takes place.

Besides the famous Château d’If another nice castle is the very old Château des Baux, which was built in the 10th century.
