  • In Britain, particularly the Saint Malo, beyond beauty architecture of the city as a whole, there is a need to meet, photograph by this building and enjoy the beautiful sunset

  • At the top of the Creek of port St-father, the Solidor Tower, located on an old Gallo-Roman site, rises more than six centuries in the middle of the coves, protected from the city of Aleth. This set consisting of three towers joined by a curtain, today the international Museum of the long course cap-hornier at the end of the Nineteenth century. It brings together, on four floors, many documents and testimonies that retrace life hard and perilous caphorniers, these sailors of the tall ships that scoured the inhospitable seas and crossing the most dangerous caps: models of ship, maps and old maps, instruments of navigation, marine charts, hardware parts, portraits of famous sailors. And can only be admired before their courage, tenacity and solidarity that animated them. The building also offers a breathtaking view 360 ° since the walkway located at the top (view to the estuary of the Rance and his dam, Dinard, Saint-Malo). The floors are accessed by many steps (stone stairs). At the foot of the Tower, you may attend the landing of the fishing product of ships that are still attached to the old port St father hold.
