Where should I go next?…
After the morning at Carnac and Quiberon, we continued to visit Vannes. They are half an hour drive away from each other so they can be combined into a day trip. For us, we spent around one hour or two in each place and of course, the time spent in Quiberon would be much longer if you want to hike all the way along the coast.
The old city wall (les remparts de Vannes) is a good start for the visit. The garden just in front of the wall is very attractive as well.
Then there are more than 10,15 timber-framed houses around the old town. You will need to walk all over the town to view them but the best place to take photo is Place Henri IV. It is the must-see in Vannes.
These wooden houses are more common in the north of France and I wanted to see one for quite some time already. Totally satisfied after Vannes!
We spent the night in Vannes and the next day before we went back to Nantes we passed by Sainte-Anne-d’Auray.
It has been a major site of pilgrimage in Brittany since the 17th century. In Bretagne, they believe that Sainte-Anne is Jesus’ grandmother and she is said to have appeared several times there and have demanded the villager to build the chapel.
The major monuments there are:
Although it was a bit rush during this weekend trip, we still managed to see most of the four places.
Bon voyage à tous 🙂
