Interactive tour of the Seyne-les-Alpes Citadel
5 - Cistern
You are here on the bastion called "the cistern". This advance made it possible to monitor the foot of the walls arranged on both sides and to practice the cross shot. Located on the right and left of the bastion you can see two staircases which descended to posternerns (escape routes).
The staircase on the left gives access to the underground cistern (sign N ° 5). Behind The gate facing this staircase was the postern.
On the terrace is the citerneau (under the small roof). The latter, also buried until 2012, served as a filter for the rainwater recovered from the roofs of the tower and the barracks.
