Ports and Docks
As centers of trading and commerce, ports
are often situated in strategic locations. “The genius of trading civilizations first manifested
in their choice of location.” Whether they are real
or out of Hergé’s imagination, ports always hold
a special place in The Adventures of Tintin.
All along his stories, Hergé favored fictitious harbors with the exception of La Rochelle and Saint Nazaire.
