The probably best known “intra muros” in Brittany is Saint Malo, the popular get out for us Rennais and the Parisiens. But there is also Concarneau in the south, in Finistère. It is substantially smaller than Saint Malo and has more or less only one street, where tourists push each other through – at least at high season. So it was hard to take pictures – I took the mainly from outside the wall. I was lucky that a circus was around at that time and sent on of their staff on high stilts for advertisement.
But I also took the must take picture with the rusty anchor in front of the clock tower.
And the expectations of visitors were met: a real corsar was greeting at the entrance. What he did not like, when people stole his picture.
As always the difference between the tides is impressive – not ar high as at the bigger sister of Saint Malo, but for people like me, who did not grow up with the sea, it is still spectacular.
Close by to the closed city was at that day also the market. In case you are hungry, try some of the Breton sausages, cheese or fish and pack into your Breton shopping bag.
