St Malo

A trip to St Malo is a must for any visitor to Brittany. This settlement whose modern name is taken from a British Monk "Malo" who came to convert the region to Christianity in the 6th century A.D. is today a thriving channel port town. There are several docks in St Malo covering commercial, pleasure and ferry traffic. The town has a somewhat dubious history having been an important base for pirates and also for the slave trade. A walk around the ramparts which encircle the old town give excellent views of the town itself and the surrounding sea and countryside. St Malo offers many attractions such as the museum the castle and the aquarium. There are also many boat trips from St Malo to the Channel Islands which although under British jurisdiction are much closer to France than England.
