Listed as a City of Art and History, Dinan will unveil its thousand and one facets during a well organized two-day-old stay. First, you can head to its castle, consisting of a keep, called Duchess Anne’s keep, near the St. Louis gate, and admire its ramparts. The castle is also home to permanent museum collections dedicated to the history of Dinan. At the end of the afternoon, take a walk around the port and enjoy some fresh air. Dedicate time to visiting some of the religious monuments, such as the church of Saint-Malo, the Basilique Saint-Sauveur or the Couvent des Cordeliers. Make the most of these visits and admire the church organs. For a nature and cultural break, take a detour by the museum and sculpture garden, a haven of peace and art.
During your week in Dinan, start by visiting the Maison d’Artiste de la Grande Vigne or the Governor’s House for a cultural break. Then take a stroll around town to stop before stopping in front of Dinan Station, which is listed as a historical monument, and in front of the Clock Tower, a 15th-century belfry 45 meters tall.
