GUERANDE, The medieval city
No, Guérande, there are no beaches, no guests with sea views and no kite surfing!
But there is the mystery of this medieval city ... So much history at every turn of its cobbled streets, squares and ramparts ... The knights today do not ride fiery steeds, but eat salted butter caramel crêpes, waiting to follow the visit of the Oficial de Tourisme.
This visit takes them in search of a buried treasure or dragon hunting, imperturbable statue that flies at night spitting fire to protect the city from enemies ...
And these multicolored mirrors that sparkle under the sun? They are salt marshes.
Discover the history of salt workers who have maintained for hundreds of years these colorful puzzles shaped by their ancestors. A meticulous work, an ancestral method to get that white gold that everyone loves, that you find in your plates and, without which the food is so bland.
City of art and history, you will find in Guérande very beautiful monuments. Walk the cobblestone streets and admire the old houses whose shops look like stalls of yesteryear.
Feel free to penetrate its ramparts to participate in many summer events such as the medieval festival, the Celtic festival, and many more.
Its peninsula will offer you charming fishing ports like Le Croisic or La Turballe, but also small typical villages such as Careil or Kerhinet.
