Château d'Oléron citadel

The majestic ruins you can see today are all that remains of a citadel built by Richelieu that proved impregnable for three centuries, before it fell foul of the bombing on April 17 1945 and decades of abandon. During its restoration (started in 1988), the site hosts cultural events.
