The Fort d’Entrecasteaux (upper part of the Fort Saint-Nicolas), classified as a historical monument since 1969, is the flagship of ACTA VISTA’s integration and vocational training workcamps. Owned by the French Army until 2011, the first restoration projects were ordered by the City of Marseille from 2003 on the glacis at the foot of the ramparts (areas then owned by the City of Marseille), then on the entire site from 2011, when the City of Marseille acquired Fort Entrecasteaux.
This imposing integration and personal training site allows the establishment and development of an innovative and committed social project in the heart of Marseille, for the inhabitants of the region.
98 jobs are contracted per year on this site, with permanent entries and exits. Each year, this site enables the training of more than 230 job seekers from the region in the trades of old buildings.
