From the Atlantic Ocean to the estuaries, the maritime heritage shapes the landscapes of the territory. First of all, the carrelets, these small fishing huts on stilts, dot the Royan coast. We discover them along the coast of Talmont-sur-Gironde à Saint-palais-sur-mer. From the most emblematic to the most discreet, the fog lights of the Royan area guide sailors and visitors alike, such as the Cordouan lighthouse or the La Coubre lighthouse. Another curiosity of Royan's maritime heritage, the remains of the Atlantic Wall. Discover the richness of our maritime heritage.
