Notes: Fort Bertheaume is in Finistere, Plougonvelin (France). It is located on an island, accessible at low tide, which is nowadays connected to the mainland by a bridge. It has long been used to monitor the narrows of Brest. Since its acquisition in 1990 by the commune of Plougonvelin, the strong and the mainland were the subject of archaeological excavations and rehabilitation to make visitable site. A major problem was that of the bridge, which had to be rebuilt several times after being swept away or damaged by winter storms. The mainland now hosting a "green theater" (surrounded by rows of "standing stones" made in the 1990s and fences), it is held there shows "light and sound" tracing the history of the site and concerts. Since 2005, zip lines and via ferrata routes were established. This journey of about 1h30 proposed by Bertheaume Iroise Adventure.
