Historic Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • A unique building of its kind that plays with the prospects with ease. Here the rope of mistress and comes to infinity. His story is exciting as well as the art of the nodes.

  • Really disappointed to see this beautiful building any valued. We see only a third party because the rest is occupied by offices. The restoration of the building was made quickly in misery cache mode. € 9 (€ 8 for teenagers) to see that it is three times too much. Fortunately, the outside is there to make some forget the scam.
