The Royal Stringerie of Rochefort

A little bit of history

Born of the will of Louis XIV and Colbert, his minister, the magnificent building of the Corderie Royale is located in Rochefort, on the banks of the Charente, 23 km from the Atlantic.
The first work was carried out in 1666 and was completed in 1669.
The first exhibition room houses the history of the monument and its role in the arsenal, the stages of the manufacture of ropes in the 17th century, based on hemp, then the evolution of ropes to synthetic ones.
Visiting the Ile de Ré is also exploring the historical treasures of Charente-Maritime.

The Royal Stringerie of Rochefort

Located in the former residence of the Commanders of the Navy, the Hôtel de Cheusses, one of Rochefort’s two oldest buildings, prior to the creation of the arsenal, the Musée national de la Marine has gathered the most precious witnesses to the life of the Rochefort Arsenal, from its construction to its closure in 1927. You will discover paintings, weapons, tools and old models of ships and machines. Many other collections are also found there. These tell of a human and collective adventure.
