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.

  • visit a submarine, c is original but it is true that c is narrow and fast as visit, and so given the price c is a mixed tour

  • Audio-guided tour very interesting and very informative! To discover a french heritage. As a submarine, the Interior is very narrow, not recommended for the claustrophobic. A few caps sometimes on the inside at the sight of the narrowness of the place but we adapt! Visit for young and old that is worth trying. Tickets can be combined with other tours of heritage in Saint Nazaire. Recommend!

  • Family visit, there was little world, so we took our time. New and informative. Do not miss. However rates are quite high in the unit, remember to take a pass.
