Presentation

 The circuit "The heart of the city and its medieval landscape" allows you to discover the traces of its medieval past in the upper city.
During the Middle Ages, Pornic is the seat of a châtellenie dependent on the barony of Rais as those of Machecoul, Princé and Prigny.
The small medieval city is organized around three poles : the castle, the market and the church.
It developed a maritime economy thanks to its location in the center of the bay and at the mouth of a navigable river.
This tour will allow you to spot the vestiges of this medieval past and to understand the strategic interest of the Pornic site.
