The World of Barge People (Le monde des mariniers)  

Tourist rout : « The World of Barge People »

Having restored the quaysides, the commune of Saint-Mammès is pleased to offer visitors a route in the heart of the town in privileged country surroundings.

It’s a Saint-Mammès "garden side" that we offer you. You can browse through a maze of trails bordering many small typical private gardens. Thanks to various themes, come and discover the barge people’s world and dive into their history and their activity.

Take a stroll through our alleys and along our quays. Observing the traces of the great floods of 1910, 1924 and 1955, you will perceive the marks of this waterway culture which faithfully reflects our earlier village life.

This tourist route is a real invitation to explore the history of these barge people who have now often become "land" people.

Free or guided tours : information available from the town hall
