The museum was closed when we visited but we enjoyed the views of the water, sailboats and the great overlook of Le Palais. Great spot to enjoy an afternoon. Small fee.

The admission fee gives you access to the museum and to the whole citadel. The museum concerns the history of Belle-île, Le Palais and the citadel itself. It is very interesting and the location is just amazing. You can then explore the citadel and enjoy the many great views it offers.

Nice museum where you can find (and read) the history of Belle-Ile. In the court there is a hotel and a five-stars restaurant, as well. The garden all around is very well decorated and the view of the island is charming.
