Small pretty walled city although quite touristy. Lovely setting in the marina. Worth walking around fhe ramparts for good views around the town. Two hours for a visit is sufficient unless you choose to go into the museum du peche as well.

Had high hopes due to a recommendation. Having been to many other places in Brittany, this one did not live up to expectations. Not much to see, full of shops. The wall areas are not well maintained.

Lots of touristy shops, nice for a bit of a walk around but really by now we’ve seen enough striped shirts and cider bowls. Don’t miss the air plant shop and the fish foot massage.

It's best to come here early in the morning so that you can see the old city before the crowds take over. There are many fine old buildings and walking along the ramparts is a highlight. At low tide you can edit out the rear...More
