Be sure to take a trip to the nearby seaside resorts of Saint-Lunaire and Saint-Briac.
Like a stone ship, the ramparts of Saint-Malo at the mouth of the Rance river tower proudly over the beaches and the port. The facades and towers that rise above the fortifications provide the city's unique silhouette. You can reach the centre via the ramparts of the fortress from where you have a spectacular view !
The Mont St. Michel
Mont Saint-Michel is not only a world-famous tourist attraction, it is also an important and ancient pilgrimage site. The buildings on the rocky point in the water were built in different periods, but nevertheless form an impressive whole. The Mont Saint-Michel has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979 for a reason.
