In 1543, war broke out on our shores as 110 Barbarossa galleys landed in Villefranche, raiding, burning and devastating everything in their path. The Citadel of Villefranche-sur-Mer, a precocious example of a bastioned fortification, was built in 1554 according to the plans of Gian Maria Olgiatti, an Italian engineer in the pay of Charles V, in order to prevent any assault from the sea.

Since Savoie became part of France in 1860, the Citadelle has been used as a military base by the 24th Battalion of Alpine Chasseurs. In 1965, the city council bought the Citadel. Its restoration was undertaken in 1979. In 1981, the city council decided to install the City Hall and a cultural center (Museums, Auditorium, Théâtre de Verdure).

With its many different modular facilities, Citadelle Saint-Elme will surprise you and make your event into a unique moment.
