A fiercely disputed citadel
The ruins of the feudal castle of Sainte-Agnès still dominate the village of the Alpes-Maritimes department. The fortress was erected in the 12th century by the counts of Ventimiglia and later destroyed following an order by Louis XIV. Only accessible by a steep path surrounded by ridges and ravines, the fortified castle formed a citadel deemed impregnable and disputed by the princes, counts, and lords of the region. An archaeological museum has been created to collect and showcase the objects resulting from the excavations undertaken on the castle's site, currently under renovations.
