What travelers say:

Chateau d’If is located on a small limestone island of 3 hectares 3.5 miles away from the old port of Marseille. It is a 28-meter square building with 3 cylindrical towers with wide shooting holes on the wall. Chateau d’If was originally proposed by King Francis I of France to strengthen the defense of Marseille. It was completed in 1531 and was used as a prison soon after it was built. In 1844, the French literary master Dumas completed the creation of "The Count of Monte Cristo" with the background of Chateau d'Eve. The protagonist Duntis was framed and arrested and imprisoned. This prison is the famous Chateau d'If.
