Salt from Southern Brittany

The protected salt marsh sites have existed since prehistoric times, and the salt is gathered using techniques which go back over a thousand years. In this way, without using any machines or chemicals, the paludiers gather the "white gold", a delicacy for gourmet diners: fleur de sel. A number of organizations offer tours of this fascinating environment: it's a great place to visit when staying in Le Croisic!

Continue your visit by stopping off in Guérande, a town of art and history which will take you back to the Middle Ages - the golden age of the town. The fortifications erected by the last Breton dukes make it a unique example of military architecture, and the only town in Brittany to be surrounded by fully-preserved city ramparts. The busy shopping streets all converge on Saint-Aubin square and collegiate church. A must-see!
