Heritage Circuit

The heritage circuit takes you around the old village of Saint Martin discovering its monuments and the places that were important in yesteryear village life. Leaving from the parish church, there are 12 stopovers which immerse you into Saint Martin’s past.

Discovery of the circuit

At each point on the circuit there is a QR-code to be flashed which provides photos and commentary about the places visited.

To access the information :

  • If you have a smartphone or tablet : download a QR-code reader on App Store or Google Play. Scan the codes on the signposts that are spread along the circuit.
  • If you don’t have a smartphone or table : The Tourist office will lend you the necessary equipment free of charge (but with a breakage deposit) or will give you a map and written summary that you can follow.

More information at the Maison du Tourisme in Saint Martin, during the opening hours.
