Souvenir of France: Fort Boyard on Resin Fridge Magnet

Situated between the Ile-d'Oleron and Ile-d'Aix in the Pertius d'Antioche located on the western coast of France is the famous Fort Boyard. It is an interesting fort that was constructed during the reign of Napoleon Bonapart during the 1800s. It is one of the tourist attractions of France and offers beautiful views. The resin fridge magnet above is a miniature of the Fort Boyard making it an apt souvenir of the fort. You can place it on your fridge and it will remind you of your trip to France or you can also gift it to your friends and family.

History of the Fort

The fort was first planned to be constructed during 1661 and 1667 but the plan was suspended due to less artillery. The establishment plans were resumed in 1692 when Descombs started planning the creation of the fort but once again, the plans weren't put into action. Finally, during the time of Napoleon, the construction of the fort was started during 1800 and engineers Armand Samuel de Marescot and Ferregeau and Vice Admiral Francois Etienne de Rosily-Mesros began designing the fort. Unfortunately, the project was again postponed in 1809 but it began again in 1837 and eventually in 1857, the fort was completed.

Layout of the Fort

The Fort Boyard is an oval-shaped structure that lies almost sixty-six feet above the ground and measures 223 feet by 102 feet. There is a yard in its middle and its ground floor consists of storage rooms and quarters for officers and other staff. The first floor used to contain casemates for placing guns and the floor above it consisted of amenities for mortars and Barbette guns. Fort Boyard was also used for the filming of the French TV game show titled 'Fort Boyard.'
