Disembarkation at Golfe-Juan
After being forced to abdicate, Napoleon Bonaparte, exiled to the island of Elba, had only one aim: escape and overthrow the monarchy of Louis XVIII. Accompanied by his grenadiers, on 1 March 1815 he disembarked on the golden sandy beach at Golfe-Juan. A stele commemorating this event can be found in the port, near the seawall. The Emperor then decided to retake Grenoble from inside the country, in order to avoid Royalist troops. He thus began to take back power; the Napoleon Route was born.
