Aire des Gréements

Historic site and monument ,  Maritime at Rochefort
  • Element of the "Jardin des Retours", the Rigging area is the replica, to the scale one half, of the mast of a vessel of 80 guns built in Rochefort, at the end of the 17th century. On deck, the main mast and the mizzen mast are impressive: by contemplating these elegant and complex rigging, one can easily imagine the seamen climbing up to tighten the sails

    The Rigging area reminds us that Rochefort was a port, where the ships of the Fench Royal Navy were anchored and it was also the starting point of many great botanical expeditions.

    At the back of the north pavilion of the Corderie Royale, the botanical garden (no longer existing) was, in the 18th century, a garden of acclimatization for the plants of the overseas.
