The Citadelle Unsuspected

When night falls, four notable figures from the Citadelle’s past come back to life. Join them as they recount true yet little-known tales of their times and transport you back to a long-ago era...

Let them lead you into the dark recesses of the fortifications forbidden to strangers. Experience the Old City's fortress as never before in this tour by lantern light—a world unseen by light of day.
