Gavrês

The peninsula of Gavrês was divided in three stongpoints. All infantry defences were in Lo 112, which is in the bent of the shoreline just south of the Anse de Gavrês. Some sources claim a 610 to be built here, but the owner gave us kindly permission, so that we could determine it as a genuine 633. The naval coastal battery is Lo 335, which presents nice casemates. Behind the navy battery there is the old French fortress on which the navy Flakbattery "Melsungen" was built. This is Lo 361, in which old Fench brickwork shelters were used for storage.
