More about St Malo

St Malo (or Saint-Malo) is a stunning walled city in Brittany, in Northwest France. It possesses a rich history, founded as a fortified island in the Middle Ages. For many years St Malo held some notoriety as the home of the corsairs, who were semi-legal buccaneers and who plundered ships owned by countries with whom France was at war. St Malo's port is the terminal for ferry services from England's south coast.

St Malo is one of the most-visited tourist attractions in Brittany. Much of the city's architecture has survived for centuries – some since the 1300s – making this an ideal destination for people who love wandering around ancient buildings. Of particular note is the Solidor Tower in Saint-Servan and the St Malo château where you can learn of St Malo's extensive and at times dubious history. There are many modern buildings as well, as parts of St Malo had to be rebuilt following a fire in August 1944 which destroyed four-fifths of the city.

Gourmets will love St Malo, as it has an impressively high concentration of restaurants. If you fancy giving oysters a try, then St Malo is the ideal spot at which to do so, as many eateries obtain fresh oysters from Cancale, a town where 25,000 tons of oysters are harvested each year.
