    The Château d'If is a medieval fortress that sits on an island off of the southern coast of Marseille, famed as the setting for "The Count of Monte Cristo." Located on the Mediterranean Frioul archipelago, this stunning, towering fortress is flanked by 3 towers with gun enclosures. The original purpose was to protect the city from seaborne attacks, but it later became a prison. Today, the fortress is preserved as a historic site and you can climb the towers to take photos of the entire island, the sea beyond and the coastline. Mark Twain claimed the structure once held the cell of the Man in the Iron Mask, though this is generally believed to be an apocryphal legend.
