About us

The visit begins in the Chapel of the Trinity around the model (reproduction of the relief plan of 1693) of this illustrious stronghold to continue with a discovery of the remains.
Mandatory reservation

The privileged position of Montmélian explains the very ancient establishment and development of its illustrious stronghold, an essential element in the defense of the borders of Savoy. Over the centuries, successive attacks and sieges, the citadel continued to transform and it was in the 17th century that it reached its peak. But the final assault led by Louis XIV in 1705 put an end to this glorious past: the citadel was dismantled. Although today only a few vestiges of the fort remain, the quality of the site allows us to understand the importance of this strategic place for the ancient State of Savoy and offers an exceptional viewpoint.
