Submarine l'Espadon, Saint-Nazaire

Categories: Landmarks, Ships, Tourist Spots
Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 400+ 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.
