Grand Bé

Grand Bé

Saint-Malo (35)

This tidal island became home to the first community of Saint-Malo in 1308 when the Malouin people revolted against their bishop and gathered there to elect a mayor. In around 1360, hermits built a chapel there, devoted to Notre-Dame-des-Lauriers, then later to Saint-Ouen. A small fort or redoubt was built there in 1555. This was replaced by other fortifications in 1652. The French writer Chateaubriand was buried on Grand Bé on 18 July 1848.

Dinan

Dinan

Dinan (22)

Dinan is a fortified town, once defended by its impressive castle, and encircled by ramparts. Built mostly on a hill, it has a strategic location on the route between Normandy and the northern coast of Brittany. From 75-metre high position, Dinan overlooks the Rance river as it flows north before emptying into the Channel between Saint-Malo and Dinard.

Dinan, with its bridge, was long the most northerly point for crossing the Rance, which a little further downstream becomes a wide estuary.
