Fodor's Review

This complex is famous for reputedly being the prison of the Man in the Iron Mask. Inside you can see his cell and hear his story; the truth of his captivity is not certain, however, it is true that many Huguenots were confined here during Louis XIV's religious scourges. Also here is a Roman boat dating from the 1st century BC and a collection of amphorae and pottery recovered from ancient shipwrecks.
