    Nature and gardens

    F - 17200 Royan

    Leave the car at the point where the D25 from Royan ceases to follow the coastline and head into the woods to access a stony platform. The Gironde, Grave Point, Cordouan Lighthouse, Coubre Point and its lighthouse make for an impressive panorama. To ..

  • 2 Sea front Interesting

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    boulevard Aristide-Briand F - 17200 Royan

    The majestic Royan sea-front is both residential and commercial and runs along the Grande Conche, in front of an immense 2km beach. The front ends at the port which is accessible to trawlermen and pleasure boats. On the front you can see the outline ..

  • 3 Pontaillac Coastal Road Interesting

    Nature and gardens

    boulevard de la Côte-d’Argent F - 17200 Royan

  • 4 Pontaillac Quarter Interesting

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    avenue de Paris F - 17200 Royan

  • 6 Church of Notre Dame de Royan Interesting

    Religious buildings

    1 rue 1 rue Foncillon F - 17200 Royan

    This church in reinforced concrete covered in a layer of resin was built in 1958 by Guillaume Gillet and Hébrard. Note how the chevet seems to bow as you look up - an effect accentuated by the 65m-high bell-tower. On the left is a pyramid-shaped bapt..

  • 7 Royan Reformed Church

    Religious buildings

    17 rue d’Alsace-Lorraine F - 17200 Royan

    The design of the temple is quite austere. Be sure to have a look inside at the wood-panelled interior.

  • 8 Royan Central Market

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Marché Central F - 17200 Royan

    The covered market, with its great dome divided into concrete segments 50 metres in diameter, is worth seeing.
