Fort de la Conchée
Saint-Malo, Brittany - 2005
Fort de la Conchée was built in the XVII century by Vauban and is part of the in-sea device made to prevent the British fleet from approaching the city walls of Saint-Malo.
This fort was acquired by a group of owners who leads a dynamic action to restore the building whose access by sea is extremely difficult. The fort was partially destroyed by fire shots of the German army during World War II who used it to adjust their guns. Today, thanks to the efforts of all, the Fort recovered its original housings and its floors’ sealing. The entire monument is subject to annual interventions to complete this work. We participated at the beginning of this great adventure, during the first part of the housing reconstruction and the terraces’ clearance.
