This magnificent tower which dominates the Peninsula of Guérande was constructed in the 17th century.  From the dizzy height of 56m it affords you an impressive view over the Ocean and the salt marshes.

The church tower of Saint-Guénolé provides the most beautiful panoramic view of this region of France! The handrail surrounded terrace is accessible by an internal spiral staircase with its 184 steps. On a clear day you can see as far as Noirmoutier and Belle-Ile-en Mer.

Tickets are on sale up until 30 minutes before closing time. It can be closed in the event of bad weather.

Useful to know:  there is a ATM machine 100m away from the tower.
