Fort Penthièvre

Penthièvre
56510 Saint-Pierre-Quiberon
Please note that the fort cannot be visited. Only the crypt and the memorial are accessible from the outside.

This is the first building you'll see, as it stands at the very entrance to the Presqu'île. Construction began in 1747, financed by the Duke of Penthièvre. It witnessed history as it was fought over by Chouans and Republicans in 1795, and was the scene of the execution of 59 resistance fighters during the Second World War.

Today, it is a military training base, and only the outdoor areas are accessible.
