Basilique St-Sauveur, Dinan

(240+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
One of the rare examples of Romanesque architecture in Brittany, Basilique St-Sauveur is a Roman Catholic basilica whose construction was begun in the early 12th century. The imagination of men returning from the Crusades comes alive with beasts including gargoyles carved from marble on exterior columns. Keep an eye out for exotic animals discovered during the Crusades, such as lions and parrots adorning the arches as well as demons tormenting sinners. Be sure to look at the famous 14th century tombstone in the north transept of the famous knight also known as the "Constable of France," Bertrand Du Guesclin.

  • The entire old town of Dinan is utterly charming with its cobbled streets and half-timbered houses. Take a walk and enjoy the cathedral, ramparts, view of the river and its old and new bridges.  more »
  • There's all the history here than you wish for. Pretty square, impressive entrance and much more inside than you'd expect. Worth seeing.  more »
