Legends of Brittany

Total distance : 535 miles | Average daily distance : 112 miles

Start city : Saint-Malo | Ending city : Vannes

Brittany, or Armor, to use the old Celtic name, seems remote and a little out of the way, and until quite recently, it really was. Maybe that explains why it is associated with legends and folk tales. However, a trip to Brittany is a very rewarding experience and allows a traveler to see a unique part of the world : The Mont Saint Michel, a self-contained fortress, where the tide waters come in as fast as a galloping horse, to form a natural moat, the old medieval town of Saint Malo and its piratical past, Dinard, Saint Brieuc. You'll discover the unspoiled beauty of its bays and creeks around Cap Frehel and Quiberon, the estuary of Morlaix, the magnificent Belle Île en Mer, the megaliths of Carnac and the town of Vannes with its typical half-timbered houses...
