Ports of the Loire
The toponymy of the Loire Valley World Heritage site still demonstrates to this day how the river has been used, especially in terms of boarding boats. "Port Boulet", "Port Charbonnier", "Port Poisson", "Port Saint-Maur" and "Port Thibaut" demonstrate how the relationship to water and access to the river are omnipresent.
You may be surprised by the vast number of ports dotted along the course of the river. This a territory punctuated with distinctive landmarks. The amount of infrastructure illustrates how much the Loire was used: pervasive, intense and essential.
