Description

You will leave from the old port of Luçon where boats used to dock until 1924, this port was filled in 1973. For centuries, Luçon has been connected to the Aiguillon Bay by a canal that we invite you to follow today to the Portes du Chapître.
Thanks to this trail, you can discover landscapes reminiscent of the maritime past of the surroundings with different types of marshes: the intermediary"". (wet in winter), "dried out" (put into cultivation or pasture and "wet") (shared between farms, hence the name "communal"). Also, during your tour, you can admire the fauna and flora along the entire canal."
