Saint-Malo, a historical city

The renowned city of Saint-Malo will take you back centuries with its astounding history full of sailors, pirates and merchants who sailed about the seas.

Over the course of the centuries, renowned celebrities such as the pirate Jacques Cartier, Robert Surcouf and Duguay-Trouin, scientists, writers and statesmen such as Broussais and Maupertuis, Chateaubriant and Guy Lachambre have created the hallmark of an unrivalled city.
