HISTORY OF A LEGENDARY SHIP: THE HERMIONE LAFAYETTE FRAGE
On March 21, 1780, the young Marquis de LaFayette embarked aboard the Hermione. He leaves towards America to fight on the side of the American Insurgents who were fighting for their independence. Two years earlier, in the Rochefort arsenal, on a slipway near the Corderie Royale, the Hermione was being built.
About two centuries later, in 1997, the construction of a faithful replica of the Hermione began, which in 2015 has completed the same journey as the original ship. Join us on this new L'Hermione journey!
