Submarine l'Espadon, Saint-Nazaire

(4.2/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
A prime example of French naval innovation, Submarine l'Espadon started as a target for torpedo practice, but ended up impressing the naval community by successfully making a journey under ice in the Norwegian Sea at far as 70 degrees north. Docked as a museum ship since 1987, she can be seen in all her glory resting at port. Peruse the complexity of the control room and admire the ingenious design that allowed this vessel to conquer the cold and ice under the sea’s immense pressure.

  • A submarine in the city in a hold. We can easily understand what sailors lived during the war while visiting this monument. We can experience emotions. I recommend the visit.

  • Nothing exceptional, excessive price for what it is. Not fit for children at the level of the comments during the visit, can of interest.
