Luçon is a must visit South Vendée: the plain to the north, south and Marais Poitevin such a cord, its channel to the sea, this is the jewel offered numerous witnesses of history that you find along the streets. The old port, the fishing district, the chapels, the cathedral and its cloister .... and a water tower with a unique architecture in the world. Walkers will delight in the bucolic garden Dumaine nestled in the heart of the city .... By discovering this city, you will understand why already Pictones time, the man had chosen this place to live in mild climate and why the 21st century is so attached to the "Belle" which also offers the diversity of shops and services, all the attractions of a country town.
