Sightseeing route in Auray


【City description】

It is a small town on the banks of the Auray river. When you look around Saint-Goustan area from the central area, you find the building with the blue roof which is the typic building in the region. As the port is far from the station, you take a bus. Because there are buses bound for Carnac and Quiberon, it is better to visit this town when you want to visit those cities.
