For the young or old, submarines are part and parcel of our history and appeal to our imagination.
Lorient's history is intimately linked with the Second World War, and the submarine Base, built by the Germans, was the reason the town itself was extensively destroyed.
The largest military fortress in Europe, it was subsequently used by the French Navy as the headquarters of the Atlantic submarine squadron until 1997.
Since then, the submarine base has been undergoing reconversion, and continues to develop. Within its walls it houses companies, offshore racing teams and tourist activities: Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly, heritage visits, outings in the bay…
A visit to the submarine Flore and its interactive museum is a logical addition to the possible leisure activities on this special site in the Morbihan department.
From your arrival, the impressive pen door sets the tone: 10m in height, it weighs over 30 tonnes.
One leaf open to allow you to enter, and let the immersion begin!
