Salt marshes of Kervillen

From the month of June and throughout the summer, the Tourist Office of La Trinité sur Mer organises walks in the salt marshes of Kervillen.

 

The history of the salt marshes of La Trinité:

After two centuries of existence, the salt marshes of Kervillen were untapped for about sixty years and abandoned.
In 1980, the General Council of Morbihan bought the salt works. The site becomes a sensitive natural area and in 2010, the rehabilitation of the marshes begins.


After two years of major restoration work, Kervillen's salt production activity resumed.
Present from the beginning of the project, Damien Phélip, a former salt farmer, is responsible for the exploitation of "La Trinité sur Mer salt", whose marketing began on the 1st of August 2014.
