The roadstead of Troie

The roadstead of Troie is a natural deep water bay located in the Illion province. It is protected from the open sea by the strait of Sion. For centuries it has been a strategical area for the Drapeaubro.png Broceliande Crown.

Today, the roadstead is a world class harbor with :

  • the port of Troie [4] : main industrial and transshipment port in Broceliande,
  • the port of Charleville [5] : main fishing and raw materials port of Broceliande,
  • the Arsenal de Charleville [6] : Fist military port of the country, hosting a submarine base, a military shipyard, a naval college and a military hospital.
  • the Arenc oil Refinery located in Troie [7]
  • the Corouge shipyard [8]
  • the Ville-Marie passenger terminal offering worldwide shipping destinations [9]

It is connected to Sansévérina and Valoris by the Eurotas river.

More than 2 million people live on its banks.

The rich ecology of the roadstead has been diminished in the past century by the exploitation of certain resources, and by the presence of a number of pollutants including heavy metals. The bad water quality is a direct consequence of the heavy sea trafic and the presence of numerous industrial installations. As a consequence, bathing is prohibited on all the bay beaches.
