Medieval fortified town with more than 1 km of ramparts, Guérande has a history of legends and white gold … The enhancement of its precious heritage has enabled it to become part of the network of Cities and Countries of Art and History. The mosaic of colors offered by its salt marshes also leaves visitors speechless.

A mandatory detour to jump back in time.
