Get closer to Guîtres’ heritage

Aquistriae. Latin isn’t your strong point? This word means “three rivers”, and that’s exactly where the name of Guîtres comes from, for this small town with a unique character. Crossed by the Isle, the Galostre and the Lary, it’s name is perfectly apt. The perfect place to learn something new during a guided tour of the town. So, to get learning, you have plenty of choices:

  • Guided tour of Guîtres and its historic monuments
  • Strolling around the port of Guîtres
  • Discovering the Abbey and its fusion of architectural styles
