Beauvoir sur Mer :

A city with Roman and Gallo-roman antecedents, Beauvoir sur Mer is one of the oldest settlements along the coast between the Loire and Gironde rivers. The port has vanished as a consequence of the displacement of the coast line; it should nevertheless be borne in mind that the monks from Saint-Philbert arrived by sea, and established a priory. The magnificient church we see now is built on much older building. Its Romanesque tower and apse, beautifully renovated, are well worth visiting.
