Brittany is surrounded on 3 sides and so deeply linked to the sea, its coastline alternates between rock and sand. Inland, there are numerous megalithic and catholic monuments. With its ever changing weather and sky, landscapes vary from day to day and even hour to hour. It is a land of sailors and fishermen, of farmers, and now… of high tech telecommunication industry.

Between Rennes and Saint-Malo, but in Côtes-d’Armor, Dinan is a medieval city on a high ground. Here it is in late afternoon on a winter day. It consists in a harbour on the river Rance and in a walled city that overlooks the harbour. Down at the harbour, an old stone bridge crosses the river, above, a viaduct does the same.
The big level difference between the two parts of the city make the rue du port, the link between the two, very steep. It crosses the city walls through the Jerzual gate. Along the street, the facades feature sculpted wood elements.
