Trip Planner: Europe / France / Nouvelle-Aquitaine / Charente-Maritime / Rochefort / Association Hermione-La Fayette
Association Hermione-La Fayette works to rebuild the Hermione, the ship the Marquis de Lafayette sailed on his way to take part in the American Revolutionary War in 1780. Enthusiasts are hoping to rebuild the ship and sail it along the same course it traveled in 1780. Plan my Rochefort trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

I cant find entry to ship walking around 30minutes and nothing 😏😏😏
Stunning place. The Versailles of the maritime world. So glad we made the effort to visit. The city is small and delightful. A place for a culture fix for sure.
Beautiful boat, what a pity that they don't have English information. Also, they could perhaps change the tents and have some permanent building. The temperature in the tents was unbearable.
