Le Fort Carré d’Antibes

This defensive building was once a circular tower dating back to 1550 on the site of the Saint-Laurent Chapel. Its construction was perfected under Vauban's command and adapted to the evolution of fire-arms and military siege techniques. Today, the Fort is classified as an historic monument.

Le Fort Carré a été construit au milieu du XVIe siècle sur décision du roi de France Henri II, afin de surveiller la frontière du Var toute proche. Le bâtiment est classé Monument Historique et situé au cœur d’un espace naturel protégé classé Natura 2000.
