Pouliguen port

The origin of the quays of Pouliguen dates back to the 15th century. Completely restored in 1861, they are set in granite and today extend to the end of La Promenade.

The edifice serves as a boundary between the towns of La Baule and Pouliguen, but originally, the Pouliguennaise bank was built.

Formerly lined with beautiful houses whose oldest dates back to the 16th century, the port has evolved. The contemporary granite constructions of the great era of the Loire Atlantique salt trade have for the most part given way, either to beach-type villas or to modern buildings from the 1960s.
Today at Pouliguen, yachting has replaced traditional activities such as salt trading or fishing.

Today, there are about 700 berths on boating pontoons and fewer than 10 fishing boats.

Visit the chapel of Penchâteau, said chapel Sainte Anne, is actually dedicated to Saint Julien. It is listed in the inventory of historical monuments as a chapel of the 15th century.

Outside, note the south-west portal of the 15th century and the ogival window with flamboyant mullions.

Inside, a beautiful wooden frame of the 15th century, interesting statues of the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries in stone or polychrome wood and ex-voto of the 18th century. The side chapel is adorned with a flamboyant Gothic rosette.
