Panoramic terraces

Recommended
The two panoramic terraces built on the roof of the lock (above the submarine Espadon) and the roof of the submarine base offer the finest views of the Saint Nazaire and Penhoët basin, one of the largest in Europe, as well as over the Loire Estuary. On the roof of the base, the "Tiers Paysage" garden (Third Landscape) is by Gilles Clément. From the panoramic terrace, Felice Varini's Suite de Triangles forms a gigantice trompe-l'oeil made up of red triangles scattered about - if you can find the exact point from which to admire them.
