Trip Planner: Europe / France / Nouvelle-Aquitaine / Charente-Maritime / Rochefort / Association Hermione-La Fayette
Association Hermione-La Fayette works to rebuild the Hermione, the ship the Marquis de Lafayette sailed on his way to take part in the American Revolutionary War in 1780. Enthusiasts are hoping to rebuild the ship and sail it along the same course it traveled in 1780. Plan my Rochefort trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
Association Hermione-La Fayette reviews

How awesome is it that they authentically rebuilt from scratch, step by step, a ship originally built in the 1700s as a working, floating "museum" PLUS they created another (skeleton) ship with masts and rigging to climb and explore - if the heights dont terrify you! Enjoy!!
An amazing place to visit, plenty to do and see and explore. Take your time and stay a whole day to explore it.
