Port Racine

Interesting
Port Racine is considered to be the port smallest in France. It takes its name from a ship's captain who, under Napoleon I, set up his base here. After admiring the moored boats, take the path at the bottom of the car park, which leads to a pretty garden dedicated to Jacques Prévert. The poet loved this peaceful green valley with a river running through it. Since 1981, a relative of Prévert has overseen and discreetly developed this enchanting area. Quotations by the poet can be found here and there.
