  • You emerge from the town up a stone staircase to an amazing view along the ramparts and the beautiful gardens below. Lovingly restored you get a feel for how the walls looked in Medieval Times...

  • Well worth a walk around the ramparts and gardens if visiting Vannes. The stream which runs through the edge of the gardens, and onto the former lavoir, is lovely. Look out for the beautiful willow...
