Pornic is the last port in Brittany.

Human presence is attested since prehistoric times.

Its carnival in April, is an event not to be missed.

For dining, the products of the famous Fraiseraie are a treat (ice cream, jams, fruit jellies). Must also cheese Curé Nantais, made Pornic. A taste too, the beers from a brewery Brigantine Pornic.
