Although at first glance it seems that this is just another fort, when you cross the moat to the entrance, it takes on a different feeling. There were musicians playing in the courtyard and lovely flowers growing there. You then pass through the entrance, you...More

Lovely place to visit as a tourist. It really is a tourist destination with gift shops and individual clothes shops. The catering was surprisingly good, even a simple gallette was delicious andthe local ciders were good but highly priced as one would expect.

From the outside, or from the air, this is a fortification that demands respect (helicopter views when the Tour passed through in July were spectacular) The visit at ground level reveals a very touristy place that doesn't satisfy at all. The remparts are free to...More

This small island is the founding place for Concarneau. A fortified island, designed by Vauban, it defended the port for centuries and several wars. Today, the interior of the walls are a bit like Downtown Disney, lots of shops and Bistros. Even if the off...More

It has been a walled town. Most of the buildings are very old, although inevitably and probably necessarily, many of them now house shops and restaurants catering for tourists, although many locals use them too and people still live there. It can get crowded when...More
