Description

Step into a literary classic when you visit the island's fortress prison, Château d'If, which was the inspiration for Alexandre Dumas' 1844 novel "The Count of Monte Cristo". Learn more about the imprisoned prisoners and get a fantastic view of the Vieux harbour!

Francis I of France used the Château d'If mainly to protect the coast of Marseille from invasion. Protestants and republicans, as well as all those who resisted official authority, were imprisoned at the Château d'If from 1580 to 1871.

The most famous prisoner here was undoubtedly Edmond Dantes, the protagonist of Dumas' novel "The Count of Monte Cristo". Unlike him, your stay at Chateau d'If will not be 14 years of unjust imprisonment. Instead, it will be a fascinating and picturesque visit.

Take the boat over and enjoy the magnificent view of the Vieux Port. Walk past the long queue to the fortress and learn about the various political prisoners who were imprisoned here long ago, such as Mirabeau and the Communards of 1871.
