Presentation of Saint-Brevin-les-Pins

The municipality of Saint-Brevin-les-Pins (14,118 inhabitants in 2018; 1,929 ha) is located on the southern shores of the mouth of the Loire estuary, 15 km north of Pornic.

Saint-Brevin, then a small fishermen and farmers' village, experienced from the 16th century problems of silting up and erosion due to storms. Its north-western end, Mindin, due to its strategic position at the entrance to the Loire, was fortified by Vauban in 1696.
In the 19th century, the planting of a pine forest to fix the dunes led to the metamorphosis of the town into a seaside resort. Its development was stopped by the Second World War during which it suffered damage. In 1975, the construction of the Saint-Nazaire bridge connecting the two banks of the estuary accelerated the development of the town.
