“Famous all over the world, Guérande’s fleur de sel is the product which is emblematic of Atlantic destination La Baule – Guérande Peninsula. Down through the centuries, the harvest and the trade of salt have sculpted not just the landscape but also the architecture of the saltworkers’villages, the ports and the areas of fortification. Currently, Guérande Peninsula contains about 2,000 hectares of salt marshes” (Wikipedia)
