Trip Planner: Europe / France / Pays de la Loire / Loire-Atlantique / Guerande / Cite Medievale de Guerande
Cite Medievale de Guerande was built to protect salt flats in the marshes below. Formidable ramparts guard the city’s entrance; they still look as if they were completed just days before you arrived. Two towers flanking the main gate have had a number of uses since their construction: as guard towers, a prison, a city hall, and, finally, a museum with artifacts, costumes, and information about military history on display. Inside the walls, the most notable point of interest is Saint Aubin’s Church, a popular place of worship and study in the 9th century. Stroll through the narrow streets and stop by a boutique to purchase local salt from the flats nearby. To visit Cite Medievale de Guerande on your trip to Guerande, use our Guerande trip planner.
