Through its strategic position for maritime trade and control of the region, Fort de Bouc has always had a dual function, both defensive work and flagship.
It has been listed as a historical monument since January 6, 1930.
Ticket office available from the Martigues Tourist Office.

In 1993, the City of Martigues undertook to safeguard and rehabilitate the Fort de Bouc. After restoration work and for the first time in its millennial history, in 2007 Fort de Bouc opened to the public, offering visitors a real journey through time.
The fort of Bouc is geographically enclosed in the installations of the oil port of Lavéra.
As a result, its attendance and use are subject to various specific constraints.
