The program of the visit
The history of this military port begins when Louis XII made built the royal tower in 1514. And then comes the construction of the arsenal of Mourillon, in the eighteenth century. This is an extension of great arsenal of Toulon, near the harbor. From the late nineteenth century, the first armored frigates are built, then comes the construction of the first submarine. Until the twentieth century, the arsenal of Mourillon is a storehouse where we store the wood for the construction of ships of the Royal Navy. After the twentieth century the arsenal of Mourillon takes on a different role as it will be entirely dedicated to underwater activities, it is the basis of French submarines.
During World War II, heavy decisions had to be taken to Toulon, the one everybody remembers is the scuttling of the Toulon fleet. Rather than join the Free French forces in North Africa, and to prevent the Nazis seized the fleet of Toulon, on the order of the Admiralty, 27 November 1942, the Toulon fleet was scuttled, or in other words sank itself its own warships.
We offer a guided tour, and strive for everyone to participate.
