Holidays in Brouage, history under the open sky a nice holiday excursion from Fouras

Brouage, created in 1555, was the first port in Europe to export salt and was fortified in 1569. In 1627 Richelieu took possession of it and gave it the appearance it has today, up to 4000 people lived there at the time. In 1665 Colbert undertook the construction of the Rochefort arsenal and it became the sleeping beauty, today a port city stranded in the middle of the land. Part of the most beautiful villages in France.
