The Napoleonienne battery

Historic site and monument, Historic patrimony, Military Patrimony, Ruins and remains, Fort in Ramatuelle
  • Under the Cape Camarat, stone remains of a Napoleonic battery, reflect the coastal defense against possible attacks by the sea at the time of the blockade of 1804.

  • From 1804, France is subject to a stric blockade by the coalition of European countries. Napoleon will organize the defense to protect themselves from dangers coming from the sea, installing batteries all allong the coast. You can see one of them on the coastal path. She was “army of three parts on lookout”. Note the Powder Keg, the small domed building protected by offshore rocks.
