Villages in Dol-de-Bretagne
Formerly a religious capital, today a small medieval village on the Brittany coast is located Dol-de-Bretagne. Its heritage is very rich. A unique invitation that very few cities can give. The Cathedral of Saint-Samson, the flagship of gothic Breton), is the most attractive, and from whose belfry you have stunning views of Mount Dol and the Bay of Mont-Saint Michel. Nominoë, was the king who chose it as a place of worship and his court, and from that, seems that you follow royal lines that will take you to the Middle Ages. Besides the cathedral, other architectural works such as the house des Petits Pallets is one of the oldest in Brittany, dating from the XII century. Three kilometers from the city rises the Mont-Dol, a boulder of granite 65 meters in height a rock that has given rise to many legends.
Streets in Dol-de-Bretagne
Dol de Bretagne Streets
Beautiful town in Brittany where we came across some locals dancing in the main street of the old town. The traditional dances had us hooked immediately, we were watching these dancers moving without sweating a drop, since the dance, really, does not require the least effort. The village is very nice and has a walk-garden that surrounds the city with views of the back of the cathedral and the typical houses of the area.
Cathedrals in Dol-de-Bretagne
Saint-Samson Cathedral
Even being a small town it has its cathedral, a fantastic flamboyant Gothic building that a wonderful window inside as its main attraction. We learnt some things visiting the cathedral and reading our guide book. The reason that this cathedral was built here was because this little town became the religious capital of Brittany and the episcopal city, hence its splendour, and one can learn a lot about the history of the construction of cathedrals in Europe if you visit (in the same square) the Cathédraloscope, unfortunately for us we missed that as it wasn't open....
