Saint Malo: Coastal Fortresses and Maritime Tales

Discover the Rich Maritime History of Saint Malo's Fortress Peninsula

Located in Brittany, just 50 km west of Mont-Saint-Michel, Saint-Malo stands as a historic coastal marvel. Home to legendary figures like Duguay-Trouin, Surcouf, and Jacques Cartier, this city traces its roots to the 6th century when Welsh monk Mac’h Low settled here.

Blessed by the Atlantic’s high tides, Saint-Malo transforms during low tide, revealing paths to nearby islands, including an ancient military fort by Vauban. Wander through narrow streets, rebuilt with dark granite after WW2, and discover charming squares, fountains, and lively markets.
