Dinan, the mediaeval town

A town of art and history, which has majestically borne witness to the centuries like a history book. With three kilometres of ramparts, 14 monumental towers and gates, and 70 historical monuments, the town of Dinan has majestically endured the centuries, as illustrated by buildings from various periods.

Dinan – Cap Fréhel : nature preserved

Le Cap Fréhel : a remarkable natural site

With its 400 hectares of moors, here, nature is even wilder. The site, with its pink sandstone cliffs, unveils all its beauty in the springtime, when it comes into bloom with the purple and yellow colours of heather and gorse. (Although, of course, it is very beautiful all year round). La Fauconnière bird reserve is the second largest in the Côtes d’Armor, after the Sept-Îles. Cap Fréhel obtained the Grand Site de France label with its counterpart Cap d’Erquy in 2019: the Grand Site de France Cap D’Erquy Cap Fréhel.
