Guérande has preserved a medieval atmosphere.

The quality of Guérande salt is world famous. But although visiting the salt marshes and discovering the ancestral techniques of the salt workers (who are called paludiers in Brittany) is a unique attraction, the quality of the town itself, a city of art and history, is just as worthy of attention. One of the rare French towns to have kept its ramparts in their entirety, a jewel of military architecture, Guérande has preserved a medieval atmosphere.

 

The streets with their shops converge on the Saint-Aubin Place and the collegiate church. Beyond the ramparts, the villages with their traditional houses built around a chapel are well worth a visit.

 

Not to be missed during your camping holiday in Brittany or on the Peninsula of Guérande.
