Mer Town Hall – Mairie de Mer

photo_144_mairie_merThe well-restored town hall in the town of Mer which, despite its name, is not on the sea. In fact, “mer” is derived from “mera” or “marais” meaning marsh. The Loire is 2 kilometers from the southern tip of the town with its population of about 6,000 people, 25 kilometers from north-east of Blois, on the road to Orléans.
La mairie de Mer, joliment restaurée. Malgré son nom, cette ville de 6 000 personnes n’est pas au bord de la mer : Mer est un dérivé de “Mera” qui veut dire “marais”. Deux kilomètres séparent La Loire de l’extrémité sud de la ville qui se trouve à 25 kilomètres au nord-est de Blois en direction d’Orléans.
