Perched at a height of 222 metres, Fort Mont Alban attests to the city of Nice's past. Nowadays, it offers a spectacular panorama of the entire Côte d'Azur, from the Italian Riviera to the Estérel Massif.
Built between 1557 and 1560 under the leadership of the Duke of Savoy, Emmanuel Philibert, the Fort du Mont Alban served as the border between the states of Savoy and Nice. 40 by 46 metres wide, this large rectangular monument has been occupied by military troops over the eras. Strategically placed between the Château de Nice and the Citadelle de Villefranche, it dominates the entire Côte d'Azur. From the tip of Bordighera to the Estérel Massif, via Cap d'Ail, Saint Jean Cap Ferrat, the Baie des Anges and Nice and the Garoupe Antibes, the panorama from its terrace is quite simply incredible. In bright sunshine, some people have even seen Corsica... The Fort du Mont
Alban has been registered as a Historical Monument since 1909 for the enclosure, 1913 for its surrounding walls and ditches, then 1923 for the 250 metre area on which it is built.
