Saint-Hilaire-la-Palud, capitale du Marais sauvage

Located in the heart of the Wild Marsh, an emblematic landscape of Green Venice, St-Hilaire-La-Palud gives you access to more than 100 km of waterways and white paths. From the Latin palus meaning marsh, the Paludéens maintain the know-how and traditions through the numerous summer activities provided by volunteers. The street villages of Rivière and Montfaucon bear witness to the flourishing river trade at the beginning of the XNUMXth century. The hamlets of Névoire keep the memory of the brick and tile making activity, once very present. The Marais Poitevin Ornithological Bird Park is now the spearhead of tourism that respects nature and people.

Also worth seeing: St-Hilaire church, Sazais castle (private), municipal ports, listed black locust tree, Venice Verte cinema…

To do: the 24 hours of the boat on the last weekend of July.
