Magné, from the Latin Magnus meaning great, is the ancient name of a rich Roman family settled on an island in the Gulf of the Pictons. Bordered by the Sèvre Niortaise and the Sevreau, the village has thrown four bridges over the waterways, the most characteristic of which is the metal drawbridge, a witness to the golden age of river trade in the 19th century. This traffic allowed the export of pottery, an old local industry fed by bri marin, the clay of the marsh. Today, the pots have given way to exhibitions at the Four Pontet located on the towpath. On the third weekend of July, Magné organises the international painting festival with 300 artists, making it the first place in France for this type of event!
