  • Built under the second Empire between 1858 and 1866 in a concern for defence of the coasts, the Fort of stone lifting of the island of Yeu was both a barracks and a famous prison policy, including for having detained from 1945 to 1951 Marshall Pétain. Known as the "Citadel" or Fort Pierre strike comes from the fact that there was at this location, a former menhir, a "stone thrown." The idea of the construction of a citadel at this location dates back to 1760, but it was done in the second half of the 19th century.

  • A pity there is not more explanations and above all an indication for a visit (but out of season may not visit). We have seen only 2 panels for us explain history of this place... a bit short

  • Do, c is a place filled with history, a pity that no one is to make the visit, but small friendly exhibition.
