The ramparts of Vannes


Part of the last remaining fortifications in the Breton region, the ramparts of Vannes remain an important tourist attraction. Their erection was started in the 3rd century by the Romans, but it was only at the end of the 14th century that they were extended and consolidated. Louis XIV then squandered them by selling the stones to finance his wars. Some buildings have fortunately survived, such as the Calmont Tower, which bears witness to local history with its medieval gate and its two passageways. This visit is really worth the detour.
