Presentation of: Sentier pedestre les Cinq Abbes

This trail starts from a limestone islet in the Gulf of the Pictons. You'll discover the canals that criss-cross our land and drain the water to the sea. The surrounding land was drained in several stages, in the twelfth century, under the impetus of the great Abbeys, then in the seventeenth century, initiated by Henry IV, and completed under Louis XIII.

From the promontory, you'll discover the special features of the drained marshlands: open landscapes, large cultivated plots, meadows, ditches and perpendicular canals that allow fresh water to drain away so as not to flood the land.
