Did you hear? The Cordouan lighthouse has joined the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List!
To celebrate this, a weekend of celebration called “Cordouan en VUE(s)!” is planned for September 25 and 26. The Poï’z don’t want to miss it and will be at the mouth of the Gironde estuary from September 26 to November 7. They are getting ready to show you Cordouan… and much more…
It’s a treasure hunt connected to a free application. Dive into a captivating universe, full of Poï’z, small characters with strong personalities, to be flushed out thanks to QR codes to be flashed at the end of the courses.
Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Cordouan lighthouse has piqued Zaméla’s curiosity! She plans to walk between Royan and Le Verdon-sur-Mer from September 26 to November 7, 2021 and her program is quite busy:
