The French Palsce was built by the Iranians to accommodate French archeologists working on the site of Darius's Palace next door. It's built like a castle but not historically significant. Nice views across town.

The Shush Castle was built by the French as a home base as they excavated the area. Commanding view over the major site and surrounding countryside. The courtyard has items similar to those seen in the Raiders of the Lost Ark movie

Built by the French to protect their archaeologists against local tribes attacks. It was built using bricks and remains from the adjacent archaeological site. Nice walk around and views, but don't waste time.
