  • Stroll through this area is worthwhile, if only for the views of the city and sit and watch the people walk.

  • The ramparts enclose part of the historic town of Vannes. There are gardens to the left which were still in bloom. Well worth taking a walk around and into the old town. 
  • A nice ride under the Sun! Very well-maintained gardens that make you want to y picnic! Valves a beautiful city with a beautiful historical sites to discover! Provide good shoes... the streets are almost all paved!

  • Such a beautiful and historic castle. Lovely gardens underneath also.
  • Magnifique remparts
  • From the 3rd to the 17th century, geometrically landscaped ramparts of the old town Hill surrounded by city walls with medieval and early modern (timbered) houses. From the French Revolution as a prison serving Porte prison 14 and 15 can be century of the old town in a park down, which extends from the imposing ramparts. From there, a very good look at the Marle flowing through the city on the old wash house offers the big tour, du Constable and the Château de l ´ Hermine, the former Palace of the Dukes of Brittany from 14th and 18th century
