Visit the surroundings of Mont Saint-Michel
One of the top places of Brittany is a few kilometers from Mont Saint-Michel. Enjoy your stay at Mont Saint-Michel for a full day exploring Saint-Malo, the Corsair city. This old city of the Corsairs, is an active port and a seaside resort at the mouth of the Rance. The metropolis of the Emerald Coast is tightened on a rocky islet. The city closed, destroyed at 80% in 1944, was rebuilt remarkably, while granite. It has preserved intact its 15th century castle and its ramparts whose way of the round commands a splendid sea horizon. Musées de Saint-Malo: The Grand Dungeon, and the towers of the château are home to interesting souvenirs about Jacques Cartier, Surcouf, Duguay-Trouin, Châteaubriand. These famous Malo are also vividly evoked in the dioramas of the Historial of waxes arranged in the big tower "Quicqu'en Groigne". St. Vincent's Cathedral and the houses of the Corsairs dominating the port were saved. Beautiful overview from the islet of Grand Be, accessible at low tide, where, facing offshore, Châteaubriand rests.
A private city to visit: Granville
Departing from Mont Saint-Michel, Discover the "Corsair City" of Granville. Its famous fishing port from which the Newfoundland cod fishermen left, remembers this period by sheltering the last wooden land-neuvier, the bride. Known to the public because it housed, a time, the teams of Thalassa, the marriedness still visits. The fishing port at the edge of the ramparts is the starting point for visiting the pedestrian streets, its market, and the Christian Dior House. The visit allows you to admire the private hotels, the museum of Old Granville which presents the epic Terre-Outport and the Museum of Modern Art Richard Anacreon.
Offshore, the islands Chausey not forgetting, to take the ferry that serves the islands Chausey to the beaches of white sand, the aquarium the rock of the harmonies and the semaphore. But we do not leave Granville, the first port to Shell France without having tasted its specialties of the sea such as whelks, scallops and other fish.
