I have so far focussed so much on the daily life, that the charming parts of Rennes were neglected and did not get due attention. The old part of the city center still has beautiful timber houses, framing rather narrow cobble stone streets. One can easily imagine how life was in the “good old times”.

The old buildings are indeed very charming, many of them host now restaurants.

The details of carved wooden details are quite amazing and sometimes frightening. I wonder whether there purpose was to scare away evil ghosts.

Nowadays people enjoy their time sitting outside with friends and a drink.
