A fantastic chance to see Hermione, a replica Concorde-class frigate of the French Navy, in Portimão, Portugal.

Launched in April of 1779 the original Hermione is famed for having taken General Lafayette from Rochefort, France to Boston, USA to deliver the secret news that he had secured 5,500 French troops and 5 frigates to support George Washington in fighting the American War of Independence.

If you'd like to visit Hermione whilst she is in Portimão, please check both their official website and that of the local tourist office for opening hours and for ticket information as you will likely need to reserve tickets in advance of your visit. Members of Hermione - La Fayette Association will be able to visit for free and without reservation within the public opening hours (according to their official website) if they present their 2018 membership card when visiting.
