Fort la Pree, La Flotte

3.4
#2 of 7 in Things to do in La Flotte
Fort de La Prée, built in 1625, is located near the eastern end of the Île de Ré, in France.HistoryIn 1625, the French officer Toiras led the Royalist troops when they captured Ré from the Huguenots under the command of admiral Duke of Soubise. After his victory, Toiras received the title of Count, and became Governor of Île de Ré. It was he who built Fort de La Prée. He also worked on the larger fortifications at Saint-Martin-de-Ré.The Duke of Buckingham ignored Fort de La Prée during his three-month siege of Saint-Martin-de-Ré in 1627. This neglect fatally weakened his position on the island. Toiras managed to land troops there, and from there force the English to give up their siege and withdraw in defeat.

    The place itself is laden with history and culturally speaking, it is a place to visit to represent the island at different times significant. Personally, I loved the place as a view of the bridge of Re. It's really one of the best memories that I will keep on the island.

    To do if you're vacationing on the island! Good walk in the fort! You navigate rooms in halls with historical explanations! Few historical objects presented!

    Very beautiful fort, well preserved. The person who is responsible for the site and makes the visit is very professional and passionate. We had a nice time in his company. A must see.
