The town of Cancale is a town born from the merger of two historic parishes: La Houle, today the port of La Houle, and the town, or Cancale from above. The houses are grouped around the old Saint Méen de Judicaël church. This live Cancale webcam is broadcast thanks to Vision environnement.
Until 1830, the two parishes lived together. Then the religious authorities decided to merge the two parishes into one, and the port of the street was pierced, giving rise to two hamlets.
At the end of the 19th century, a new Saint-Méen church was built on Place de la République. The city is built, houses are built along the old Vau Baudet road which went down to the port. Subsequently, the development of the subdivisions will include the different districts to form the current municipality.
With many activities geared towards the sea, the port lives to the rhythm of the tide. It has developed into a natural refuge area and has been structured with the construction of two dykes which delimit the existing port. After the shipyards and the days of big game fishing in Newfoundland, today it is oyster farming and tourism that enliven the walks of La Houle with gardeners coming and going at sea in rows of oysters that appear at low tide.
