  • If you are in the Lorient region, do not miss this visit, especially if you are with children of school age. 2 solutions for rally: either out of dock of Indies, Lorient or from the fishing port, but then to be confirm that the feature is Port Louis. The crossing of the harbour is an additional approval. The fortress type "Vauban", is she even a place to discover. The Museum is exciting, from the age of 5 years, with his models, his old guns and its Museum of rescue at sea. I have conducted my grandchildren and even girls have been delighted.
