Fort Énet


Fouras, France (FR)
Fort Énet is a fortification in the Pertuis d'Antioche in Charente-Maritime, France. It is located on the "Pointe de la Fumée", the roadway extending from the city of Fouras, between Fouras and Île-d'Aix, and can be accessed from there at low tide.

Fort Énet formed a line of fortification with Fort Boyard and Fort de la Rade on Île-d'Aix, designed to protect the arsenal of Rochefort from Royal Navy incursions. The building of the fort was started in 1810 by Napoleon I, following the devastating 1809 Battle of the Basque Roads.
