What to do in Vannes, in the heart of its historic monuments

The streets and alleys of Vannes evoke the originality and uniqueness of medieval-style architecture.
This unique décor is provided not only by the paving of the streets and the timber-framed houses, but also by the town's fortifications and the major landmarks such as Saint-Pierre Cathedral, the Gréguennic Bastion and La Cohue...

You can't visit Vannes without seeing its ramparts, which could be described as the cornerstone of Vannes' heritage and the main source of its appeal to tourists.
The destruction of the Château de l'Hermine is regrettable, but fortunately a number of towers still remain, proof of the town's eventful past. These include the Tour Calmont and the Tour du Connétable, all of which have their own stories to tell.
La Cohue is home to the Musée des Beaux-Arts de Vannes, a haven for many contemporary works of art. It's also easy to imagine life as it would have been in the Middle Ages.
Saint Peter's Cathedral is the city's main religious monument, a basilica that houses the mortal remains of Saint Vincent Ferrier.
Finally, a visit to Vannes means a visit to its famous half-timbered houses. There are well over a hundred of them still standing around the cathedral, if not in the faubourg Saint Patern. In any case, the most beautiful are to be found on Place Henri IV.
