Niort’s mercantile history goes back to its very beginnings, and the city has always enjoyed thriving trade. The Donjon d’Aliénor d’Aquitaine, a listed building, bears witness to the glorious medieval past of this former citadel. But it was not until the 1970s, when the major mutual insurance companies chose to set up their head offices in the city, that it earned its reputation as capital of the French social economy which it retains to this day.
From the Brèche to thebanks of the Sèvre, the city centre dotted with shops and narrow pedestrian streets is a popular place to walk around. And for a nature trail through the Venise Verte, take the Coulée Verte, laid along the route of the former towpath, either on foot, by bicycle or even on horseback. Lastly, hikers will like the 53 kilometres of signposted trails that surround the city.
Niort has successfully reconciled culture with history to better enhance its unique heritage. For example, the Pilori, the former City Hall and a Renaissance-style gem, is now an exhibition hall. In the Halles Baltardthe market has of course taken over, while remarkable places of worship such as the Eglise de Notre-Dame and Eglise Saint-André as well as the Temple protestant still hold church services.
Niort regularly hosts major events like Foirexpo, one of the biggest consumer fairs in western France, attracting thousands of visitors on the first weekend of May each year, and Rencontres de la jeune photographie internationale, both of which marked their 20th anniversary edition in 2014.
