Located in Finistère (West of France), Camaret-sur-Mer gets equipped with a « gilded tower » (whose name is due to the colour of bricks) built by Vauban between 1693 and 1696 in order to protect the port of Brest and its flotilla. The tower was not even completed when it was bombed in 1694 during the War of the League of Augsburg. Vauban who commanded at this time military operations, repelled in triumph the landing attempt of the Anglo-Dutch flotilla during the battle of Trez-Rouz.
This room of 14.8m² is based on the third floor. It offers an unobstructed view of Pont Battant (bridge), river Doubs banks and Eglise de la Madeleine (church).
