BIKE TRAIL “LES PRISES”

Bicycle trail Les Prises

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.
