Discover a medieval French town with this Guerande Day Trip. You'll also visit the town's famous salt pans, which are one of the main tourist attractions in the Loire region.
Guerande Day Trip
After picking you up at your hotel in Nantes at 1 pm, we'll head towards one of the most beautiful areas of the Loire region.
The first stop will be the village of Guérande, to take a guided tour of its medieval centre. During the walk, you'll surely be struck by the large number of fortifications scattered throughout the village. The reason for these defences is due to the war of succession in Brittany, which we'll tell you more about during the tour.
During the tour we'll also learn about the history of outstanding monuments such as the Collegiate Church of Saint-Aubin and the Chapel of Notre-Dame-la-Blanche, a jewel of French medieval architecture. We'll also stop in front of some of the ancient gateways to Guérande. The most spectacular of all is the Porte de Saint-Michel, located opposite the Town Hall.
Following on, we'll go to the outskirts of the town to discover the famous Guérande salt marshes. How are the grains of salt extracted and harvested? What techniques are used? We'll explain all these details to you as we walk through the different plots of land set aside for this purpose.
At the end of the visit, we'll taste the salt and return to your hotel in Nantes, arriving at 6 pm.
The tour includes pick-up and transfer back to the hotels in the centre of Nantes. If you're staying in more remote areas, we'll pick you up at the Baco bus station, located on the avenue Allée de la Maison Rouge.
