  Fort St Nicolas behind Fort St John
by BeChar

After a few hundred meters along the quay, you arrive at Saint-Nicolas Fortress, the second place (with St John Fortress) that used to protect the old Port.

Dominating the city, this star-shaped fort (in the background on the picture) proper to Vauban was built from 1660 to 1664, ordered by Louis XIV.

The next destination is the Pharo, straight on at the top of "Boulevard Charles Livon".

Address: Vieux-Port
