The medieval city of Guérande

It’s known as the “Carcassonne of the West”. A historic gem and a must-see tourist attraction in the Loire-Atlantique region, the city of Guérande has kept its medieval ramparts and defensive towers intact. A visit to the walled city is a must for your camping vacation!

Testifying to the prestige of the fortified city during the Renaissance, the Tour Saint-Michel houses a museum dedicated to the history of Guérande during the reign of the Dukes of Brittany. A unique opportunity to take a walk on the heights of the ramparts. Around the collegiate church of Saint-Aubin, stroll along the cobbled streets between stores and hidden treasures!

Visit the salt marshes

Welcome to salt country! The Guérande peninsula is famous for its salt marshes, which have ensured the prosperity of the area for many centuries.

Today, the 2,000 hectares of marshland form a unique mosaic landscape, home to hundreds of bird species and precious flora. Guérande’s salt and delicate fleur de sel are treasures to bring back in your suitcases.

To find out more about their history and understand salt production better, visit the saltworks on themed guided tours or on the little train, and admire the work of Guérande’s salt workers!
