    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.
