It is a hell of a clmib to the citadel but the view at the top is fabulous. But really there is nothing else of interest. So if you are fit and want a challenge it is probably worth a visit.

If you go here, you go for the near 270-view. The Citadelle itself is nice but not extraordinairy. The stroll up is nice as well, through little streets of Forcalquier and steep :)
