Fort National - Review

The island on which this Fort stands is called Îlette. Once, a lighthouse stood here, and an execution ground. Later, in the 17th century, under the King’s orders, they built a fort here to augment the city’s defences. In WWII, they fort was taken over by Nazis who briefly held over a hundred locals prisoner; these were later released. These stories, and other tales of military life at the fort will be narrated to you. Though it’s a famous monument, and you can visit it easily during summer, there’s not much to do here. The only way to see the fort is by enrolling in a guided tour. Call the attraction to arrange for one.

Fort National, St-malo Reviews

Google+
  • Worth a visit if you are interested in the military history of St Malo and/or Vauban architecture. Guided or unguided visits possible, same price though. Has some beautiful views of the sea, island fortifications and the walled city of St Malo.

  • Looks great from the outside and only Eur5 entry. You only spend half hour having a little walk about. Not much going on really. You also have to walk over rocky ground to get to the entrance which is not ideal for everyone.

  • Excellently preserved historical monument well worth seeing. Good views of St. Malo.

  • Incredible place. Beautiful and remote.

  • Interesting place with great views of the city.
