We stopped on the way from Bretagne to Ile de France, and were pleasantly surprised by this little medieval town, with its well preserved streets and castle.

Very pleasant medieval city center that you need to visit if you are in Vitré. Cobbled streets, very beautiful old houses, a castle in very good condition. Very nice for a small town.

Cobbled streets, timbered buildings, and a large chateau-like a castle. Monty pythons "bring out your dead" comes to mind. Well worth a visit.

A rainy day so few people about. Beautiful timbered houses, narrow streets, and lovely shops. Free parking beside train station - easy walk to town.
