Grand Langoustier fort

Built between 1633 and 1640 by order of Cardinal Richelieu, he had a key strategic role in the control of the entrance of the channel leading to the harbor of Toulon. With his little brother nearby (Little Lobster on the island), it played an important role in controlling the entrance to the little pass. Since 2006 he has assigned to the Coastal Conservancy. A restoration was undertaken. Recently he dons ocher colors that sublimate it.
