Things to see and do

The battery Azeville:

This fortress is now a museum that can penetrate 350 meters underground to explore the architecture of the blockhouse. An exclusive movie traces the construction of the Atlantic Wall and present relations between the occupying German forces and the people, through the testimony of AZEVILLE.

The tour tries to give a concrete vision of what could be the daily lives of 170 men in this environment of reinforced concrete

The battery is now completely independently discovered through an audio guide in six languages.
