Cézon Island and Fort - Aber Wrac'h

Why take advantage?

Opposite the Baie des Anges convent is Fort Cézon, named after the fortifications built there. The island was a military fort until it was decommissioned in 1889. The importance of this fortification has always been vital to the port of Aber Wrac'h, which was already mentioned in the 14th century as an important port of call. Vauban undertook to erect more extensive fortifications in 1685, but the work was not completed until 1694 and 1695. During the Second World War, Fort Cézon was of strategic importance, as bunkers were built on the island, integrated into the earthworks of the existing ramparts.
