Rivedoux Fort


Guided Tours

"The fort at Rivedoux is not only the most exposed site on the island but also in the whole kingdom, and therefore deserves to be considered one of the most important"(Vauban).

The military engineers of Louis XIV decided to construct this fort to strengthen the maritime defense of the Ile de Ré, La Rochelle and Rochefort after their fragility had been demonstrated when Buckingham landed in 1627.

For the full story of this amazing fort and to discover its inner workings, just follow the guided tours organized by the Tourist Office  only for groups.
