The town of Saint-Nazaire was born with its port 150 years ago. The docks of the submarine base and the Penhoët neighbourhood are just steps away from the naval shipyards – one of the largest, oldest (still in activity), and most innovative in the world.

Saint-Nazaire is also home to examples of Belle Époque architecture, beaches and coves, headlands and cliffs, a coastal path that is several kilometres long, and a magnificent promenade along the seafront, just minutes from the city centre.
