Colline de ChâteauThis popular hillside park in the promenade area provides a very pleasant alternative when the crowds in the city are becoming too much. But don’t expect to find a château – it was knocked down in the 8th century.  Colline de Château, the hill between the old city and the port, where there used to be a castle until its destruction in 1706 by Louis XIV.

The hill now has a beautiful park is a big favourite with locals and tourists alike. Surrounded by a typically Mediterranean backdrop of pine trees, carobs, figs and aloes, the park’s impressive waterfall, children’s play area, breathtaking views over the city, medieval ruins and Maritime Museum are all part of its appeal. Get here on foot, by car or take the lift from Rue des Ponchettes at the foot of Bellanda Tower. Admission is free.
