  • The last bridge ferry in France. There are more than 8 in the world. Unfortunately its full restoration will end that in 2020 and here where the book can be approached as identified by the Palisades to the construction site. The visit is therefore only for aficionados of the industrial structures at the beginning of the century last as the walk along the Charente between more or less to abandon military warehouses and agricultural greenhouses is not as charming as claimed by tour guides. Negotiate this pedestrian detour under penalty of recriminations with the family! You can access the site in a vehicle which after all is the best solution, these aren't ballads on the coast that are lacking in the Department!
