Sightseeing route in Dinan

Dinan

【City description】

It is a medieval town which has been surrounded by ramparts before. There are wood buildings in the town and we find a clock tower as the symbol. Because it is popular for the visitors, there are restaurants and souvenir shops. When you go down a long street, you’ll arrive at a calm port.
