Saint-Malo, corsair city
Saint Malo has managed to preserve its image of a corsair city, much to the delight of the many tourists who have fallen for the charm of the Emerald coastline in Brittany.
Take a stroll around the ramparts which encircle the Citadel over 1754 metres and around the pretty streets lined with houses once belonging to shipowners. Plunge into the heart of the maritime history of Saint Malo, back to the time of the East India Company, pirates and explorers... Also discover Porte Saint-Vincent, Porte Saint-Thomas, La Hollande strongholds, Saint-Louis, Saint-Philippe, the Fort National, Petit Bé fort and La Conchée fort… The architectural heritage in Saint Malo is fascinating and remarkably well preserved.
