Le Sémaphore

A military control station to communicate with the ships on the atlantic ocean nearby. Built on top of a German WWII bunker that was part of the ‘Atlantikwall’ defense line. This impressive structure, in the middle of enormous woods, can be seen from miles away. Very few people know it’s abandoned and it’s far away from residential areas, so there is almost no vandalism. It was abandoned only 10 years after it was built, the story goes that it was actually built on a bad spot, since the tall trees covered the sight.
