Fort de Brégançon is one of the most beautiful sites of Bormes-les-Mimosas and bears witness to a rich history. This islet was conquered by the Greeks in 400 BC. It served as a trading post. The rock then became a stronghold. A fort would be built in the 11thth century. This place bore witness to great figures and historic events (Napoleon, the First World War, etc.) before becoming the official residence of the French president in 1968. François Hollande decided to open it to the public.
The Arsenal of Toulon is a city within a city. A working naval base, the Arsenal covers 268 hectares with 10 km of quays, has 30 km of roads, employs approximately 12,000 people and has around thirty buildings used by the Naval Action Force.
The base was established in 1490 when the first crews for the King's ships were formed.
The New Dock was built by Vauban in the late seventeenth century. The main extension dates from the mid-nineteenth century, at the height of the steam powered naval and large colonial expeditions of the Second Empire.
The Arsenal in Toulon remains an important military port in France.
