On Sunday June 20, Pierre, one of the lighthouse keepers, invites you to discover the Cordouan lighthouse during a guided thematic tour, in complete privacy.

The concept

Usually, at Cordouan, the lighthouse keepers welcome visitors at the foot of the lighthouse when they arrive by boat, giving them a presentation of the monument, before letting them discover the place on their own.

Would you like to benefit from the comments of one of the inhabitants of the lighthouse for you (almost) alone? Then these guided thematic tours are for you!

Schedule of the visit

Pierre invites you to discover Cordouan with him, for an hour, in a small group, in order to present some of the different facets of the “King of Lighthouses”, and more particularly its role in the maritime signalling of the Gironde estuary. At the end, lighthouses will have (almost) no secrets for you!

This visit is intended for passengers arriving from Royan.


Practical information

The number of places for this discovery of the rocky plateau is limited to 15 people, to allow a better quality of visit.
