The church of Saint-Hilaire

A charming little church built in 1896 by Lesparre-born architect Bonnore. It replaced the Romanesque church dating from the 12th century, which has now been demolished. The remaining stones were used to rebuild the present church. The bells have also been preserved. It was inaugurated in 1901.

The marshes
The marshes

It all began in the 17th century with the work carried out by the Flemish to drain the marshes. Dykes and channels were cleared, sending rainwater from the land towards the estuary. This work enabled the village to develop, with the transport of goods such as linseed oil, wool, paper, draperies and flour. Flour was the product of more than twenty mills, some of which can still be seen in the commune.
