History and urbanism
Royan began its expansion in the beginning of the 19th century when bathing in the sea came into fashion, and it quickly became a major seaside resort. Picasso stayed here during the period between 1930 and 1940, and the city inspired a number of his paintings.
When the city of Royan was bombed in 1945, more than 85% of its buildings were destroyed. It was rebuilt using the modernist techniques of the great architects of the time. Today you can still admire the Belle Epoque villas with their unconventional architecture, one of the features that make the town unique.
Make the most of your weekend in Royan to enjoy strolls by the seaside and to relax on the Grande Conche beach, which stretches from the marina pier to the headland of Vallières. Another walking circuit that you will enjoy is the one linking Royan to Pontaillac.
Are you looking for ideas for a family excursion? More than 1,600 animals can be seen at the Zoo de la Palmyre, just a few minutes from Royan.
Royan possesses an interesting heritage relating to the history of the Saintonge province. The Phare de Cordouan, built in the 17th century, is the oldest lighthouse in France.
An emblem of the city’s post-war architecture designed by Guillaume Gillet and Marc Hébrard, the Royan Church of Notre-Dame is considered a masterpiece of modern architecture. Among the many seaside villas, you can see Villa Les Campaniles, inspired by the former Foncillon casino.
A number of festive events punctuate the Royan agenda, especially in the summer months. These include Jumping International de Royan, an international show jumping competition at the end of July; Un Violon sur le Sable, a classical music festival in July; Les Illuminations de Pontaillac, a light show that can be seen every summer evening from sundown to 2 a.m., and the Fêtes de la Belle Epoque, bringing pre-war Royan back to life in July and August.
