DISCOVERY TRAIL “QUARTIER DU BOURGNEUF”

Four centuries of history preserved in the streets of the Bourgneuf neighbourhood wait for you to dive into a world full of activities.

Description

A stone's throw from the Cathedral, this district located between the rue de l'Union chrétienne and the rue de l'hôpital was built mainly during the 18th and 19th centuries.
Recently, Marie-Thérèse Réau, of the Pays de la Loire Region Heritage Department, discovered an agreement dating from 1442 mentioning Bourgneuf.
The inhabitants of the neighbourhood, gathered in an association, had plaques placed in the streets of the neighbourhood allowing the walker to understand its history in a precise and pleasant way.
Welcome to the world of merchants, canons and the people of Luçon of yesteryear: convent, canonical houses, private buildings, hospitals and low-rise houses naturally lead you to the old port and its warehouses and factories.
