Fort National

Fort National
is a fort on a tidal island a few hundred metres off the walled city of Saint-Malo.

The great military architect Vauban had it built in 1689 to protect Saint-Malo’s port.

The fort was originally called Fort Royal.

In 1789 the fort’s name became Fort d’Îlette or Républicain, then Fort Impérial and, after 1870, Fort National.
