Tour Fondue fort (batterie du Pradeau)

Come and discover the 17th-century Fort du Pradeau. Fauna, flora, geology, cultural heritage... Its permanent interactive and immersive exhibition reveals the many riches of an exceptional territory, a veritable Mediterranean melting pot.

An emblematic historic monument, the Pradeau Battery has been completely restored and refurbished to become the interpretation center for the Port-Cros National Park territory. Open to the public since the end of 2022, you can immerse yourself in the permanent exhibition "Making the invisible visible". You'll discover the knowledge acquired by the National Park, the sometimes unsuspected riches that make up this territory, whether it's fauna and flora that we often ignore or forget to look at, submerged heritages, hidden sites, know-how, human memories...
Welcome to the world of Port-Cros National Park!
