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.

  • Beautiful building which has been redone in the rules of art and impressive when you see its length. Exhibition and interesting comments on the realization of the ropes. However, visit rate is rather high. Ticket duo at the price of € 16 per person with the visit of the Hermione. Beautiful library that allowed us to buy several books: there is something for everyone.
