La Baule area

This part starts on the south bank of the river La Vilaine and ends at the beginning of the KvGr Loire at Pointe de Congrigoux. KvGr Loire was later called Festung St Nazaire. The designation character of the strongpoints is "T", which stands for Turballe. A second designation "Tu" was also used.

Highlights in this area are:

  • the six inland batteries, to be followed by 3 in the Festung St Nazaire
  • the Panzerwerk Pen Bron
  • many fine observationbunkers, some with the cupola
  • the battery at Batz sur Mer
  • defences at several "Pointes".
