Sentier Détours N°1 – Saujon
Our towns and villages conceal many treasures... which are often ignored or avoided, hidden alongside the routes we take, far from the "direct" routes.
You will be able to discover through detailed explanatory panels the remarkable elements of the historical heritage of the city of Saujon.
The origin is possibly Celtic "sau" (salt) and "on" (water). The name would also come from the Gallo Roman "Salvianonem" or "villa Salvii". The city was called "Savion", then "Saujean", finally Saujon.
