Tourism in Saint-Malo, Brittany
Considered as a jewel of Brittany, Saint-Malo is an exceptional and attractive tourist destination.
Saint-Malo is one of the most visited spots in Europe. Its views and its history full of adventures represent an irresistible attraction.
The golden past of the city was built by great historical figures. Surcouf, Jacques Cartier and Duguay Trouin, among others, were born under the protection of the fortified town before writing some famous pages of the history of French navigation. Saint-Malo was also the birthplace of Chateaubriand, well-known figure of French literature.
The Corsair city is proudly erected on the rock, against all odds, braving winds and tides. A walk on the walls that surround the town and allow you to admire the exceptional views of Saint-Malo bay and of the Emerald Coast is a real must.
