Saint-Nazaire – Expect the unexpected!
Say “Saint-Nazaire”, and most people will reply: “Les Escales!”
This music festival, which draws a crowd of 45,000 people, has become the symbol of a city that has radically altered its image in just a matter of years. To this, one might add the transformation of the monumental and mysterious architecture of its submarine base, which is now home to several world-class cultural sites. And, let’s not forget the revamping of the seaside promenade and the beauty of its beaches (no less than twenty)! As a matter of fact, the beach in the Saint-Marc district was chosen for its beauty by legendary filmmaker Jacques Tati, and served as the backdrop for his film Mr. Hulot’s Holiday… Truly, this town is worth more than just one trip! All this, plus the chance to discover a “city of art and history”, makes it an all-around wonderful place to live!
