Fort Boyard on a very nice summer day! Taken on a little beach on the Ile d’Oleron in Boyardville!
located between the Île d’Oléron and the Île-d’Aix in the Pertuis d’Antioche straits, on the west coast of France. It was designed to bridge the gap between the two islands, as the cannons of the time couldn’t protect such a large space.
Construction began under Napoleon in 1801, but unfortunately wasn’t finished until 1857 – by which time the range of cannons had increased, and the fort was utterly redundant. Fort Boyard eventually became a prison.
- although these days mostly for the thought of the truly terrible TV show of the same name
