Dinan City Walls
(6)
A really nice little town but if you visit on a rainy day try not to wear flip flops or go down the slopes, because all the ground is stony and slippery and to top it off bring the drink cart because so many potholes you will end up sick. It´s worth it though!

Porte du Jerzual
(1)
This was one of the places I liked most when I was in Dinan Brittany. Despite the buzz that permeates throughout the day, at night it becomes a quiet little town. There's nothing like getting lost through the narrow stone streets. Enjoy the beauty of the facades, the half-timbered houses and of course, dream bows like this that take you to a different era.

Viaduc de Dinan
For years, the residents of Lanvalay and Dinan were demanding the creation of a bridge to unite both sides of the River Rance. They had to wait until the year 1852, when it was finally opened. It has 10 arches, each 16 metres, 7 of which belong to Lanvalay and the other 3 to Dinan. It's an impressive sight from afar, 40 m high and nearly 290 m long.

Clock Tower
(1)
It's always the same, every time I see a tower or a tall building, my first thought is to go up. In this case, the top is 45 meters up. To reach the Clock Tower, you have to climb 158 steps, which is reduced to 79, if you take 2 at a time. From the top, you should first take a huge breath, and then enjoy the bird's eye view of the squares, streets and houses of Dinan and the Rance Valley. The bell of this tower was donated in the 15th century by the Duchess Anne of Brittany. She was such a personality, to prevent France from devastating the Breton duchy, she married King Charles VIII. But it was too late and Brittany would never fully regain their independence.
