History of the Château


Immortalised by the writer Alexandre Dumas in his 19th-century novel The Count of Monte Cristo, the most famous prisoner to be held at the Château d’If was the novel’s protagonist, Edmond Dantès. Unlike Dantès, visitors will not be unjustly imprisoned here for fourteen years, but can enjoy a fascinating day touring the château. The prison also housed a number of famous historical figures in France, such as the Comte de Mirabeau, who was incarcerated on the orders of his father.

The Château d’If has been perfectly preserved and is one of the most impressive historical sites on the Mediterranean coastline.
