Corderie Royale, Rochefort

Corderie Royale, a vast complex filled with museums and architecture, attracts as many as 150,000 yearly visitors. First built in 1666, the complex was spearheaded by architect François Blondel. After a brief strike that stopped construction, the structure was built by a team of 700 workers, who finally completed the project in 1669. Restoration of the site began in 1976 and ended in 1988, transforming the site into a hub for culture and history.

    The Corderie Royal is Royal on both the quality of its exhibitions always on maritime themes in the wind of the year. But will above all lose you with your children (if you have) in this huge library. Your CB station, he's going bad

    We went on Sunday 20/09 in the morning, Sylvie at the reception was very helpful. For him have requested, thank you for her kindness and her smile! The site is dynamic, demonstrations & fun workshops, the friendly staff and very clean toilets (very rare these days). A place where one can only go back!
