Plymouth: inauguration of the "Napoleon Bicentennial" dedicated site 611d15cd6736c

On the occasion of the bicentenary of Napoleon's death, the city of Plymouth (UK) has launched a website dedicated to the Napoleonic heritage of the port city.

The site contains ideas for routes through the city, on foot or by bike, as well as activities for young people.

The city is famous for having welcomed the ship Bellerophon in its bay, known in English as "Plymouth Sound", during July 1815. It was here that the fate of Napoleon, who was detained on board, was decided. 

Plymouth Sound, the UK's first Marine National Park, is a great place to explore this heritage, particularly through sailing expeditions.
