La Citadelle de Saint-Tropez

Who remembers that in the 18th century, Saint-Tropez was the third largest French port in the Mediterranean?

Who remembers that many Tropezian sailors spent half their lives in the Ottoman Empire?

Who remembers that the first Tropezians to round Cape Horn went whaling?

The museum offers visitors the chance to discover the activities that kept thousands of the city's sailors busy for centuries, such as coastal navigation and fishing, as well as more personal journeys or careers such as those of Captain Annibal Bérard in Zanzibar or Captain Morello on the Indian coast.

The collections, bought by the town, lent or donated by individuals and institutions, plunge the visitor into a history that contributed and still contributes significantly to creating the Saint-Tropez of today.
