    • An unmissable visit during your stay on the Ile de Ré!

      Built in 1849 and inaugurated in 1854, to replace the old tower built under Vauban (today classified as a Historic Monument), the whale lighthouse offers you, from its 57m height, a magnificent panorama over the whole of the island of Ré but also a beautiful view towards Oléron, its neighbor.
      Your visit is enhanced by a bookstore where you will find books, posters, and other souvenirs.
      Finally, stop at the whale museum, a few meters at the foot of the old tower. You will learn about the history of lighthouses and their construction techniques, thanks to innovative multimedia means that will please everyone!

      Price: Adult: 3.50 €
