  • Inaugurated in 1993 to celebrate the centenary of the birth of Alain Gerbault, this place has the task of defending the memory of Laval Alain Gerbault.

    Inaugurated in 1993, the space Alain Gerbault pays tribute to the Laval navigator who, from 1923 to 1929, was the first to make the world tour solo. To this sporting feat, the native of Laval added at that time a humanist dimension by becoming the ardent defender of the Polynesian culture threatened by Western customs. Died in 1941, Gerbault leaves us inherited his taste for adventure, the sea and this paradise elsewhere. A bust in memory of Alain Gerbault was recently set up next to the space dedicated to him, in the heart of the Perrine garden. Espace Alain Gerbault is currently closed. Visits possible by appointment. Heritage Service 02 53 74 12 50
