Description

The Marais Poitevin is the result of the progressive filling of the former Gulf des Pictons. These territories, still rich in salt, are gradually being colonized by so-called "pioneer" plants and form the salt meadows locally called "mizottes". When these areas are large enough, people build dikes. The conquered ground is then drained thanks to a network of canals.
