Guerande

Guerande in the Loire-Atlantique department is a “presqu’ile” - a “nearly island”, surrounded by much lower land all around, with the famous salt marshes to the west and south between it and the sea.

The town has almost 10,000 inhabitants, and an interesting walled medieval centre, and it is best known for its production of seasalt.

But the golden age of Guerande was in the 15th century, when the town was a port and the Guerande fleet comprised 270 ships.
