St-Goustan's Quarter

Interesting
You can admire beautiful 15C dwellings around St. Sauveur Square and on the uphill lanes of this charming port. The paving stones date from when St-Goustan was the third most important port in Brittany. The Benjamin Franklin Quay reminds us that in 1776, this illustrious American, who was in charge of negotiating a treaty with France, arrived at Auray, since head winds had prevented his ship The Reprisal, from sailing back to Nantes. The house he stayed at, nº 8, has a commemorative plaque.
