St-Goustan's Quarter

Interesting
Some fine 15C buildings remain around Place St Sauveur and on the uphill lanes of this charming port. The paving stones date from when St Goustan was the third-ranking port in Brittany (16C and 17C). Quai Benjamin Franklin is a reminder 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 to Nantes. The house he stayed in, no 8, bears a commemorative plaque.
