A look back at the inauguration of the Citadelle

On Monday 29 April, Fort Saint-Nicolas was officially inaugurated!

The Acta Vista, BAO Formation and the Citadelle de Marseille teams inaugurated the fort Saint-Nicolas in the presence of their partners!

They were delighted to welcome Benoît Payan, Mayor of the City of Marseille and Jean-Marc Borello, Chairman of the Management Board of the SOS Group, as well as Christophe Madrolle (Chairman of the Regional Council's Biodiversity, Sea and Coastal Commission, Regional Nature Parks, Risks), Daniel Gagnon (Vice-Chairman of the Metropolitan Council, responsible for Culture and Cultural Facilities) and Baptiste Rolland (Prefect responsible for Equal Opportunities).

360 years after its construction and more than 20 years of work carried out by the Acta Vista and BAO Formation integration projects, the Citadelle is proud to return its fort to the people of Marseilles, its neighbours, artists, researchers and tourists, to continue and enrich its history.

We'd like to extend our thanks to everyone present on Monday: partners, journalists, artists, sponsors... not forgetting all the teams who work every day to make this great project yours too!

The day ended with a festive evening on the terrace of the Moulin, which will also be open to visitors from 4 May!

As you can see, our gardens, our cultural programme, our Guinguette and our teams are all waiting for you!
