If there is just one museum in the commune of Rochefort that you should not miss, then that should be the Corderie Royale or the Royal Rope Factory. The longest of its kind in Europe, the rope factory is the center of the commune's former arsenal. Because of this, it is considered to be one of the premiere Rochefort attractions.
One of the greatest gems in the heritage of French heritage, the Corderie Royale, which is 374 meters in length and 8 meters in width, is set on an oak raft. This makes the factory quite an amazing piece of structure, which is compounded by the fact that rigging and ropes for the use of the Navy were made in it until the year 1867. Having been constructed starting 1666, more than 350 boats were completed in the rope factory for an expanse of 250 years. Even if this factory was damaged by a fire in 1944, it was completely restored to the glorious and fascinating building that it is now between the years 1976 and 1988. As one of the greatest Rochefort attractions, you will be able to find wooden scale models of 18th and 19th century French warships here.
