Fort du Cabelou

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Fort du Cabelou was built around 1746 to defend Bay of La Forêt entrance and Concarneau harbour.

The fort is horseshoe-shaped. It has a guard room topped by a sentry box and a gunpowder store.

Its entrance is protected by a half bastion: The paraped has 6 openings facing the sea.

In 1794, 24 gunners were in charge of four 36 pounds canons.

The fort was decommissioned during the 19th century.
