This fort is currently being reconstructed after a long time of neglect. Due to that, not all the rooms are open to public, and that in quite a small fort. But still, you can see how the fort was operating, get nice views of Saint-Malo, and learn the complete complex of the city defenses from the pictures in one of the rooms. The guides are friendly and ready to help, both in French and in English. After restoration works will have been completed, the fort should become a real marvel.
To get into the fort you need to climb some steps carved in the rock, and then a set of wooden stairs - be ready.
After you have walked to the fort during the ebb tide, it is really amazing to see how the fort becomes quite a distant island when the tide rises. Actually, no less impressive than watching the tide in Mont Saint-Michel.
