    Tours in Saint Malo intramuros with a local guide

Saint-Malo


Saint Malo has considerable assets to satisfy your taste for discoveries as well as relaxing and physical activities, within the ramparts or along the coast. The city can boast a rich history, greately related to the sea. The art of sailing, the spirit of explorers and corsairs, and the fishing port,
exude a touch of adventure on its ramparts and so typical stones.

Some illustrious people grew up or roamed around the city. Saint Malo is a unique place, which is reminded by one of its old mottos : "Neither French, nor Britton, I am from Saint Malo". You could stand by and listen to its stories for a long time, to look into its heart in front of its islets and forts in harmony with the tides. You might wonder that the city had even established a brief Republic!
