What are the Fort Boyard cruises?
It will be possible for you to approach the Fort Boyard if you opt for a cruise in the harbor of the island of Aix and the arsenal of Rochefort.
The commented cruise will allow you to discover the history of this fort whose construction was undertaken under Napoleon to protect the harbor, the mouth of the Charente and the arsenal of Rochefort.
However, the construction which lasted 30 years considering the size of the site is no longer justified even before its completion because the progress of artillery was faster and thus the range of fire of the cannons being more effective, the fort had then no more military interest.
