Pontaillac is a coastal area of town Royan in the Poitou-Charentes area of France, with an impressive waterfront that is popular with surfers and sunbathers in equal measure. Although Pontaillac and Royan do not offer too much in the way of ancient sights, following its complete rebuilding during the 1950s, it is an interesting example of a modern French architecture, which includes the impressive Church of Notre-Dame (built in 1958), the Congress palace (built in 1957) and the Central Market (built in 1955), while there are a number of historic places to visit in the Poitou-Charentes that are within easy reach.
