Corderie Royale, Rochefort
(3.7/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Museum very interesting I think it's better to do it with a guide. To do before going to see hermione. We had taken the pass Museum and hermione.

There are all types of large ropes, machines that made them and other objects of the period. the entered and a bit expensive but we must take the pass with the visit of Hermione and the factory it's cheaper.

  • Centerpiece of the arsenal of Rochefort, the rope is already in itself a beautiful building. The content is equally. On the way out you will know all about ropes, rigging, halyards, and seamanship. Animations can help understand the realization and are very educational. Take advantage of the ticket that is grouped with the visit of the Hermione who will complete the walk!
