Tourism Rochefort

Rochefort is a town in the department of Charente-Maritime in Poitou-Charente. Historically, this is a city built by Colbert to King Louis XIV and his navy.

Rochefort is a military town in its origins but also by its construction. The streets were traced with chalk. Around this went quickly placesd, workshops, forges and sailmakers, all that was required for maintenance of the Navy.

Tourists can visit the first stop industrial building, old rope factory, which is the longest in Europe. It dates from the 17th century and now houses the institutions of coastal defenses.

It is also possible to see a copy of the Hermione frigate built in 1779 to battle Rochefort. The history of the city is strongly related to travel and ships, but there are also green spaces like the Garden Returns, which celebrates the botanical discoveries we have made the naval expeditions in the past.
