BEAUVOIR-SUR-MER – Le Daviaud – La Barre de Monts

The Ecomuseum Marais Vendeen – Le Daviaud is a vast open-air museum founded in 1982 in the village of La Barre-de-Monts. It consists of 80 hectares of original natural environment. La Barre-de-Monts is located in the Baie de Bourgneuf.This vast marshy area was the leading European producer of sea salt during the Middle Ages. La Barre-de-Monts still had about 300 salt marshes during the 19th century. The Ecomuseum Marais Vendeen therefore went in partnership with a local salt producer in order to redevelop one of the salt marshes. He also explains the various stages of salt production and let people visit his salt shack or salorge.
The Ecomuseum Marais Vendeen also became a member of Ecosal Atlantis (2009-2013).
