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.

  • Presentation of a film that we inform in the history of the Corderie. Presentation detailed a host on the (comprehensive) of string making another small movie on the industrial production of the strings. In closing, an expert facilitator in the creation of nodes: very interesting and dynamic (a real passionate nodes). Cost of 8 euros (a little expensive?)

  • Very interesting. Film history in the corderie is interactive, just like all of the fairly modern Museum in the processes used. A part of the very interesting story of Rochefort.
