It was originally to guard against an English attack with the aim of destroying Lorient that the fort of Penthièvre was built in 1747 by the duke of the same name, admiral of France and governor of Brittany. Dominating the only access to the peninsula, where the lagoon cordon is only a few tens of meters, it will be impossible for you not to notice this vast bastion built on this rocky promontory. A witness of history, the fort of Penthièvre will be disputed by the Chouans and the Republicans in 1795 and will be part of the wall of the Atlantic during the second world war. From April to July 1944, it served as a prison, a court and a place of execution: 59 members of the resistance of the Locminé maquis were tortured and shot by the German soldiers. If the fort at Penthièvre is now used as a training and commando initiation center, some parts are open to the visit, especially the tunnel in the rock, a place of memory, where the bodies of these 59 Morbihan martyrs. A monument erected in 1948 in memory of their sacrifice is commemorated each year on 13 July. Registered in the inventory of historic monuments and now owned by the army, it shelters the 3rd Marine Infantry Regiment.
