The south side of the Gironde river was very well defended to protect the river entrance, the river port & the U-boat pens of Bordeaux. Also it did not fall into the hands of the allies until late 1945 after a very nasty battle to take the area.

We did not manage to visit this complex but with more time another visit will be on the cards next year.

Above : how it may have looked.
