Naval base and arsenal

Interesting
Richelieu gave the order to build a naval base here, in the Penfeld Valley, in 1631. At the end of the 19th C, a sea wall was built, creating a vast harbour where the arsenal and naval base were set up. This was followed by a submarine base, built by the occupying forces of the Second World War. Naval fans can visit the arsenal only if they have French ID cards.
