This place is not listed in the Michelin Guide, and had I not visited St Malo 8 months earlier and seen it in the materials, I would not have known about it. It was built as part of Hitler's Atlantic Wall to protect St Malo...More

Interesting visit, only open from 2pm. There is a 45 min film and a guided tour. It would help if there had been English subtitles to the film and the tour was in French with a quite limited english notes.

This memorial tells about the conquest of St Malo and L'ille d'Alet by American troops in WWII. It involves a tour of the extensive German fortifications built at L'ille d'Alet and the story of the unfortunate unnecessary bombing and destruction of the old city of...More

Amazing place. Really interesting. Underground tour of about an hour, in French, - (the guide occasionally throws in an English phrase, but he speaks slowly and clearly, with great emphasis, so if you remember your schoolgirl French, you should be okay). A lot of stairs...More

If you are interested in history and the second world war then this is a real treasure trove. It is an old bunker which was built to protect Saint Malo and is a large underground complex. Some areas are closed to the public. There is...More

We kind of stumbled on this memorial on our walk from Saint Malo to Dinard. It is definitely worth the 15 minutes it takes to check it out. I was most impressed by some photos that I thought were of Normandy but actually were from...More

Visited with teenagers and younger children. Firstly the negative points: There is no point arriving outside the published tour times as you cannot go inside the memorial on your own - guided tour is mandatory. Secondly, the 45 minute film is ok if your French...More

Not easy to find and can only be visited inside the main bunker by guided tour. However, walking around the grounds shows how the Germans converted a historic fortress into a maze of bunkers and pill boxes to create one of the strong points on...More

We came on this almost by accident. We'd heard there was a "WW II Memorial" on le Cite, but here were bunkers, artifacts and quite a nice museum. Well worth visiting if in the area.
