In Toulon harbor, one can see many forts. The first works were those of the royal tower. It was built to protect the port and to welcome the enemy to blow gun if the urge to invade Toulon were taking.

Histoire du port de Toulon

A changing harbor

The history of the port of Toulon begins in 1924, when the Chamber of shops and VAR industry is entrusted with the following mission: taking care of the port of Toulon.

At that time, the commercial port consists of the North East part of the old Darse, which was reserved for fishing and boating, as well as the basin of the rode, assigned to unloading.

The most transported by sea merchandise was bauxite. This red rock and having a high alumina used to produce aluminum.

 

The port was modernized at the dock of the rode and facilities needed to advances in navigation into place. It was then in 1933 that was born the quay Pierre Fournel. After that, the commercial port can accommodate two ships finally on its deep water dock. Then a railroad created between the port and the railway station, to facilitate the transport of bauxite.

Then, after the Second World War, the port is destroyed because of the bombing, and rode the basin is lived then replaced through the debris of the port buildings. Thus was born the merchant port. Then after numerous studies around the harbor it became gradually that we know today.
