Located in a very picturesque setting overlooking the southern coast of the Rhuys Penninsula jutting out into the Gulf of Morbihan, the site is fronted by a visitor’s center which functions more as a ticket counter and gift/souvenir shop rather than as an informative, introductory...More

We walked from our hotel and it is about 15 minutes to get to the bunker. It took about 15 minutes to get through each of the areas but definitely worth a quick visit. Our local guide, Arnelle, gave us some great information about the...More
