Dinan is an architectural gem, ringed by 2,700 metres of ramparts. Its historic streets contain 15th and 16th Century half-timbered houses as well as Renaissance residences, Romanesque and Gothic churches and ancient chapels and convents.
The view from the Jardin Anglais is quite breathtaking, looking down on the ancient port and the magnificent viaduct which spans the River Rance.
A strenuous but rewarding walk is from the town to the port via the steep Rue de Petit Fort, one of the oldest streets in Dinan.
The town has over 35 eateries ranging from no frills bars to traditional creperies to cordon bleu restaurants.
Each Thursday there is a large market for fresh vegetables, cheese, bread and all sorts of other gastronomic delights.
