5. Visit the giants of the sea in Saint-Nazaire
Mythical creatures such as the Normandie and the France, collossal beasts like the Queen Mary 2 and the Harmony of the sea; all these ocean liners were “made in Saint-Nazaire ». When you visit the “Chantier de l’Atlantique” shipyard, you will be able to see, in action, the gigantic gantry cranes which are capable of lifting vessel parts as high as tower blocks. Impressed! Another giant of the sea manufacturer in the city harbour is the wind turbine! At the beginning of 2022, the offshore park of Saint-Nazaire, which will count 80 units, will be the first of its kind to be operated in France. Since Feburary 2019, a wind power discovery centre enables the public to better understand this technology. The permanent and interactive facility provides opportunities for visitors to have fun, take part in scientific experiments as well as experience wonder.
