Location History
Antibes is one of the starting points of the first crusade of the 11th century.
A first dyke was built in the 16th century, then a jetty in 1648. The bastion Saint-Jaume (between the port and the old fortified town) was built to the east of the cove in the late seventeenth century. Vauban and his chief engineer Antoine Niquet undertook major works to redevelop the ramparts of the fortified city and its port in 1680 (as part of the fortifications and constructions of Vauban for the iron belt of King Louis XIV).
