    Ramparts of Saint-Malo

    High above Saint-Malo.

    For a panormaic view of the "Stone Vessel” (the nickname of the part of Saint-Malo inside the town walls), the best vantage point is from high above on the ramparts. These ramparts were constructed under the direction of the engineer Garangeau, who had worked with Vauban, and were meant to reinforce the existing medieval fortifications.

    Breathe in the sea air as you stroll along and watch the pretty bobbing of masts and sails on the ships moored at the docks. Enjoy the seascape, the horizon, and the vista over the roofs of ship owners’ houses.
    After enjoying the view of St. Malo from on high, you can discover the secretive streets of this pirate stronghold.
