This original postcard by Lotza depicts the downtown harbor of Saint-Martin de Ré, a historic town located on the island of Ré in the Charente-Maritime department of France. For centuries, Saint-Martin de Ré has been an important port for shipping and maritime trade. The city was also a strategic point for the defense of the region, with its famous Fort Vauban, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Over the centuries, Saint-Martin de Ré has become a popular tourist destination, known for its beautiful sandy beaches, charming downtown with cobblestone streets, restaurants and stores. The town also has a rich history, having been an important maritime trading center during the golden age of sail, and having been occupied several times throughout history, notably by the English and Germans.
This illustration perfectly represents the beauty and authenticity of Saint-Martin de Ré, with its colorful boats moored in the harbor and its historic buildings in the background. It’s a great way to add a touch of charm and history to your home or office, while having a souvenir of this beautiful and iconic town.
