Gujan-Mestras : Gujan-Mestras

From the port of La Hume to the port of La Mole

Gujan-Mestras is emblematic for its 7 ports which stretch over the 7 km of the commune.

The port of La Hume: A must during your visit to Gujan-Mestras, the port of La Hume and its supervised beach for a relaxing afternoon with the family with a breathtaking view of the basin.

The port of Larros: Once an important fishing port between the wars, particularly for sardine fishing, it is now one of the most emblematic of Gujan with its oyster huts offering tastings and the oyster house, an oyster museum. For a typical and warm atmosphere, enjoy free concerts and shows in season during the Jeudis de Larros.

The port of Gujan: Important oyster port, you can see, in spring, thousands of white tiles, called "limed", intended for the collection of spat.

Capital of oyster farming

Capital of oyster farming

An inland sea of more than 155 km2, the Basin lives to the rhythm of the tides and the climate, creating the ideal conditions necessary for the reproduction and development of oysters. Each year, nearly 7,000 tons of oysters are produced.

To find out all about oyster farming, a visit to the Oyster Museum in the port of Larros is a must for the whole family and all year round.

To continue the visit, join the oyster farmers and fishermen of the basin to discover the oyster beds or the setting up of fishing equipment in respect of nature.

The ladybird: emblem of the city

In the 20th century, the town's 300 hectares of wine-growing land were struck by evil.

The cause of the evil was the "barbot" which, in local dialect, refers to insects such as beetles, chafer beetles and ... ladybirds. Masses and processions were organised in the vineyards to cure the disease and the affair caused a great stir in the region. Very quickly, it earned the Gujanais the nickname of "barbots" from the Testeriens, inhabitants of the neighbouring commune of La Teste. The nickname "barbot" quickly became a pretty little ladybird and the symbol was really born in 1923 when the rugby players proudly wore it on their shirts.
