LE COURGAIN - SAILOR'S QUARTER FROM CALAIS
Formerly a simple indentation in the maritime landscape, where a handful of fishermen gathered, the Courgain is today, the neighborhood closest to ports.
In the 1st century, Emperor Caligula had two towers built there, to prevent the risk of an invasion from Britannia. Then, around the 9th century, a hamlet formed near a natural harbor. The Courgain was born, and brought together a few dozen families of fishermen. Living from fishing, the Courguines are Calaisians but they are Courguines in their own right.
Much more than a luxury product in the realm of Table Arts, Gastronomy, and French-style Bien Vivre, ''Le Calaisien«'' is indisputably the symbol of an entire city,
with the aim of conveying the image of Calaisian know-how in France and internationally.
Today, the Courgain district, steeped in history, is a lively, festive and essential district of Calais.
''Le Calaisien«'' is the memory of a two-thousand-year-old history.
