Maritime Graffiti in the Loire Valley

Boats of several sorts appear in graffiti all over the Loire Valley. The reason is the importance of the Loire as a highway for goods and people from prehistoric times to the 19th century. These informal sketches are often not easy to see unless you know where to look -- and that's where we at Loire Valley Time Travel come in. We can make sure you don't miss out on some of the most interesting historical graffiti. Some are primitive, some are truly artistic. All tell a tale of the Loire that we will make sure to pass on.
