Alycastre fort was built under the authority of cardinal Richelieu between 1633 and 1637 to defend the coast and prevent the landing on the beaches nearby. Closed to the public.
A squared pyramidal tower with an eight-pointed star enclosure and drawbridge gate entrance.
After the British troops retreat in the late eighteen century, it was modified between 1811 and 1814 under Napoleon. It was a state prison between 1848 and 1875.
Listed as “Monument Historique” and owned by “Conservatoire du littoral “ since 2011.
