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

  • Looks awesome from the outside, unfortunately is closed after 30th September, so I wasn't able to see it from the inside. I found it very fascinating, that you can get there just at some time of the day, when the water is low.

  • Good place to visit during Saint Malo city walk. Can be reached on foot during low tide.

  • It offers an absolutely stunning view of the cost and the walled city of Saint malo. At the same time the fort also looks magnificent amist the crystal blue water.

  • A beautiful fort, and crystal blue water around it... lovely.

  • The most interesting thing about the fort is the view it gives of the coast and city.
