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.

  • What a beautiful place! Night walk, the buildings are very well informed, even in this cold January. Visits are closed this season, but walking along the Charente River with a view of these buildings is a real pleasure! Everything is done on foot.

  • Visit this city of Rochefort, a human dimension, consisting of beautiful stones, its edges of Charente or nestles beautifully the Corderie Royal elegant and timeless; We cross a the outside of birds around the reeds at the edge of the water, you're walking in the park or on the surrounding roads. c is so soothing to reconnect with nature than we s surprised d be as well in this city of average size. We never tire of the Charente Maritime.

  • If you're curious like me, feel free. It is a manufacture of marine ropes which explains the impressive length of buildings (200 m I think). The rope is part of a set of buildings dedicated to the boats. Visit the workshop of seamanship ++ very playful exhibitions including for young audiences. Half a day to visit everything, summer do one morning.
