13 things to doin Marseille
An impregnable citadel, a fort on the If island, which was built to protect Marseille from any conquerors attacking from the sea.
Château d'If, Marseille
The castle was built in the beginning of the 16th century by the order of the king. By the end of the 16th century, it changed its purpose and was used as a prison for especially dangerous criminals. The leaders of the Paris Commune were kept here and even executed.

Only in 1890 the fort was opened for free visiting. Since that time, it is visited by a huge number of travelers from all over the world, because the camera of Edmond Dantes from the famous novel of Alexander Dumas "The Count of Monte Cristo" is located here.
