    The Keroman submarine base is of great historical importance in the context of World War II. Built by the Germans in 1941, it housed around 30 U-boats and a submariner rescue training centre. It's the oldest remaining base and the only one still open to visitors. Davis Tower - renamed after the war - is a stunning setting for an original multimedia tour. With the battle of the Atlantic in the background, it traces the history of shipwrecks and submariner rescues. The museum features a fine collection of films, archive images, scale models, eye-witness accounts and unusual objects recovered from the Lorient coast from the 40 or so ships that were wrecked or scuttled during World War II.
