This Breton city, established in the 1st century BC, is located at the confluence of the Ille and Vilaine rivers. Lively, with a heavy student presence, Rennes is a pleasant city to visit.
It boasts a Medieval air with its half-timbered houses, Mordelaises gates, and a drawbridge around what is left of the old fortifications, as well as the Duchesne Tower and its 15th century rampart. In 1720, a fire destroyed three quarters of Rennes, leading to a reorganisation of the city. This reconstruction was entrusted to engineer Isaac Robelin. A touch of modernity can be seen in the areas surrounding the squares home to the City Hall and Parliament.
In terms of culture, the Champs Libre< /i> holds the Museum of Brittany and the 'Espace des Science' and its planetarium.
Valued for its promenades and gardens (Thabor, Oberthür, Tanneurs, and Beauregard), Rennes offers relaxation and simplicity.
The half-timbered houses of Rue Saint-Michel, Lices market, Saint-Georges Palace... there is no lack of attractions here.
Take a stroll in old Rennes, visit the Parliament of Brittany, or even discover Rennes by boat!
