It is believed that the Greek explorer Pytheas past at Saint-Nazaire. Archaeologists believe that Saint-Nazaire is built upon the remnants of Corbilo, described by the Greek navigator Pytheas as the second-largest Gaulish city after Marseille.

Saint-Nazaire is a major harbour, on the right bank of the Loire River. Saint-Nazaire has a long tradition of fishing and shipbuilding.

During World War I, the city became an important unloading port of the allied troops. At the beginning of World War II, Saint-Nazaire like Dunkirk became an evacuation point for the British back to England.
