Saint-Nazaire (France) gains “City of Art and History” status


Officially awarded by the French Ministry of Culture, the status recognises the proactive policy aimed at regenerating and showcasing the industrial, port, maritime and natural heritage of a port city that was devastated by the Second World War. The policy also forms a key plank of the City Port project, which includes measures to redevelop the submarine base for new uses. Local residents and associations have been included in the process, notably through the creation of a Heritage Council. With this major project, the city and its various stakeholders are forging a new identity.
