If you think the church of St Malo is impressive, the church of Saint Saveur won't disappoint. It's next to the English Garden, where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the Rance Valley. Built in different styles: Gothic, classical, Baroque and Roman. In 1954 it became a basilica. Inside you can find the heart of General Bertrand Duguesclin, famous for the events during the Hundred Years War against England.
The Eglise Saint Malo is a pleasure for all the senses. Why? Because you can hear the music made by the English organ, manufactured by Oldknow in the nineteenth century. For your eyes there are the windows of Louis Barillet, made in the twentieth century, capturing the light from outside and projecting it onto the walls. They tell the stories of the town, for instance the history of Dinan. And for the smell there is the great smell of magnolias surrounding the church. More details. The church of Saint-Malo is located in one of the highest points of Dinan. Its construction began in the fifteenth century and lasted until the nineteenth. As with all long-term construction, his style began as Gothic and Renaissance ended.
