Brittany
The Essential

Varied landscapes, a strong identity, a profusion of heritage sites and a thriving cultural scene: it's all waiting for you in Brittany!
The coastline makes a strong first impression. Wild in parts, at the steep cliffs of the Pointe du Raz, at Cap Fréhel and along the Crozon peninsula, the landscape softens at the Morbihan Gulf, one of the finest bays in the world. Without further delay, take one of the coastal paths and explore the beauty of the different coastlines: the pink granite of Perros-Guirec or the emerald lying between Dinard and Cap Fréhel.
Brittany is also a land of myths, religious fervour and history. Wander into the Brocéliande forest and the parish closes (enclos paroissiaux) that are typical of lower Brittany, be amazed by the megalithic standing stones at Carnac, and take refuge behind the ramparts of St-Malo.
Last but not least, Brittany would be nothing without the Bretons. Not only sailors, fishermen, farmers and seaweed farmers, but also researchers, students and artists inhabit a region that is often extremely lively, as is certainly the case in Rennes, its capital.
