Vannes Ramparts

Recommended
In the Middle Ages a ducal castle stood on the site now occupied by the Château de l'Hermine (18C). The Marle River, which flows at the foot of the fortifications erected in the 13C on Gallo-Roman remains and remodelled until the 17C, the formal gardens and the cathedral in the background compose a scene that has inspired many painters. Get above ground level to best enjoy the view in this most picturesque part of Vannes or cross the gardens at the foot of the ramparts.
