Embark on a cruise to discover Fort Boyard

Famous all over the world since television rolled out the red carpet, Fort Boyard remains the emblem of our department.
You can approach it during a cruise from Rochefort directly on the Charente or from Fouras or Saint Nazaire sur Charente.
Fort Boyard was built on a sandbar in the 1840s initially to defend the Pertuis d'Antioche and the arsenal town that was Rochefort.
The fort was never used for its original purpose, however, as artillery had made great strides during its (long and difficult) construction.
