Port Louis: 4 centuries of fortifications

An immersion in the past through unpublished plans

Exhibition catalog - Port-Louis: 4 centuries of fortifications

From the first fort built in 1591 by the Spanish to the fortifications of the Second World War, this catalog traces, from many plans, the history of the defense of the harbor of Lorient, through various themes: the evolution of the cartography, the role of the engineers of the fortifications and cartographers of the navy, the espionage, the maintenance of the fortifications ... Some plans are for the 1ère times presented to the public.

A resonance at the 400th anniversary of the citadel and the attribution of the name of Port-Louis by Louis XIII to the city.
