An ancient castle built to defense France has changed it's purpose and is opened for travelers as a museum and the observation deck.
In the majestic castle, which had to be an impregnable fortress on the path of the enemies attacking France, nowadays the Musée de la Castre is located and only the formidable high walls, which were not touched by time, are reminding of its former purpose. Now in its walls important historical and archaeological finds are collected and exhibited and the tall quadrangular castle tower has turned into a viewing platform with a panoramic view of Cannes.
