Built in the 17th century, the fort de la Hougue and its superb tower equipped with fortified bulwarks is joined to the mainland by alsmost a kilometer long sea wall. It stands as a perfect example of exemplary military architecture, and is representative of Vauban's coastal defense investment in further forts built to protect harbours and landing points. The Fort de La Hougue was built impressively by one of Vauban's students, Benjamin de Combes and is used by the military to this day, open once a year during national heritage days.
