Walk around the citadel of Château-d'Oléron

An easy and quick visit to the city of Château-d'Oléron located not far from the bridge of Oléron.

The construction of the citadel began in 1630, it is partly a realization of Vauban. The visit of the citadel of Château-d'Oléron allows to have a beautiful point of view on the whole region. There are maybe some missing panels about the history of the citadel. There is still the endless panel of repentance on the triangular trade. Phew! We are saved.
