Here is a place of supposed historical importance that looks like a rubbish dump. Never mind what looks like two abandoned containers that have been trashed and are full of trash. The citadelle was supposedly restored in 2000, but is a graffiti ridden mess. Overall,...More

We took a bike ride to the citadel. The view is spectacular. The water is clear so the photos from this high point are beautiful. We really enjoyed it.

On the edge of the harbour this a stunning remnant here and is a great place to wander around and check out the ocean and mountain views.

The citadelle is quite imposing, only the grounds are open , there are good views over St Florent, it could be a lot better .

Short walk from town centre; view of town in morning is excellent but the citadelle site itself is run down and dirty; not really worth the walk

Could have more to add but a simple walk and nice views surrounded by cute town. They also have a latin fest here in summer months.

Always good to visit historical sites but was not able to find information about the history. Located at the far end of the town. Not wheelchair friendly.

It's one of the most scenic place in the island. If you have a kick for photography this is your place. You can just spend hours clicking and sitting g just doing nothing.

The main reason to use this area is for the free parking. It does have great views over the harbour and gulf. Beware though. The car park is in essence in two parts, an upper and lower level. We parked in the upper level and...More
