Vannes, to visit
Vannes, port of the Gulf of Morbihan and city of art and history is an exceptional place for lovers of heritage and strolling lovers!
Narrow streets, old half-timbered houses in various colors, take time to discover this charming medieval city with many facets.
Former seat of the "Breton" Parliament, Vannes has indeed kept alive the main vestiges of its rich history. The ramparts and their laundries on the banks of the moat, the Cathedral, the Cohue and the museums rub shoulders with the flowery gardens of the medieval center.
