Dinan

Dinan is a town in northern Brittany in the Cotes d'Armor department. It has a very attractive setting overlooking the valley of the river Rance. A major highlight in the calendar is Dinan's Fête des Remparts. The town is transformed with decoration and many locals dress up in medieval garb for this two-day festival - but the festival occurs only every other year, which can catch visitors out!

Today, much of the town has been restored or renovated. There are houses with colombage fronts and semi-timbered houses too. There are also substantial sections of stone wall around the town - which are worth visiting.
