TOWN PRESENTATION

Mornac-sur-Seudre, over the centuries ...

Coastal living place since Neolithic Mornac, the Celtic "dull" and "acque" (flatwater) has been fortified since the Middle Ages to protect maritime traffic between La Rochelle and Bordeaux.

On the remains of a building Merovingian church, in part Romanesque apse has a remarkable 12th century closed. The inner base of the tower is oblong, consisting of four horns (one in Saintonge) in 1952 the excavations have revealed traces of a prehistoric settlement. Six centuries before our era, the figurines were Mornac. Remains on the marsh, their favorite plant, the fragrant "santonin.

Stronghold until the 17th century, Mornac resists English (home of 1433) and was in turn Catholic and Huguenot in the wars of religion.

Fishing, fish farming, salt and oyster farming have led to craft a very special coastline.

It is pleasant to walk in Mornac! A labyrinth of narrow streets but bright. As you stroll, you will discover the Halles to the 14th century, the church where, from the belfry, we contemplate the banks of the Seudre living place of choice for egrets, herons and other marsh birds. A rich and varied environment for taking time to observe it. Over the flower-decked streets, artisan workshops are open to you, and the discovery of Saintonge specialties. Can not lead you on your port; traditional boats are a reminder of the long maritime history Mornac. Mornac quietly unfolds in the attentive visitor. A village where life is good, stroll around a village classified among the "Most Beautiful Villages of France".
