June 19 – thematic visit on restorations
On June 19, in small groups, on the occasion of a thematic guided tour, discover the Cordouan lighthouse through the recent or historical restoration work.
The work on the lighthouse deserves a specific visit
The history of the Cordouan lighthouse is marked by major works and a large-scale campaign has just been completed. Thus, each winter, once the lighthouse is closed to the public, the workers and craftsmen take up residence and share the daily life of the keepers. Supplies to the site are organized by sea transport or helicopter. The quantities of stone, lime and tools needed must therefore be calculated as precisely as possible. Raising, cutting, replacing, sculpting… the work is meticulous and precise.
The different facets of the site will be presented to you during a guided tour in small groups.
An exhibition entitled « Les travaux de Cordouan » has been displaying at the lighthouse since April 2.
Maximum 15 adult participants per visit. Supplement: 8 € per person
The schedule for this visit is compatible with the 11:45 am departure from Verdon-sur-Mer with the Vedettes La Bohême : Reservation
