Dinan town guide
This Brittany town situated to the south of St. Malo on the River Rance, it is one of the prettiest Medieval Cities in France. You will probably have parked your hire car near the old port, so walk from here up Rue de Jerzual into the Old City, as you go enjoy the churches and the half timbered houses that you pass. In the Old Town, visit the Place des Cordelliers and Place des Merciers before climbing the Tour d'Horloge which gives the best view of the town and the River Rance.
The city walls are almost complete and going around them makes a splendid walk.
The Chateau de la Duchesse Anne is a museum of local history and along with Les Jardins Anglais should not be missed.
The Basilique de Saint Saviour is a delightful mixture of architectural styles having been added to at various times over the centuries. In particular the eighteenth century vaulting is worth seeing. Having seen these you will probably wander through the old lanes enjoying the little artisan shops which make Dinan such a delightful town to visit. While doing this take the opportunity to try a Crepe which is a sweet pancake or a Gallette which is a savoury one.
