Every year, it opens its doors to 25 000 enthusiast visitors keen on discovering lighthouse’s history.

Cordouan lighthouse is a military art structure, classified monument since 1862. During the visit, you could admire a room of great rarity: the chapel of “Notre Dame de Cordouan” situated in the second floor, which is certainly the most majestic part of the structure. « less
