Dinan in Brittany

Dinan is a fabulous medieval hilltop town to visit.  But it became spectacular when we happened to walk around to the other side of the St Saviour's Basilica and found a panoramic view down to the river Rance and the port section of Dinan.  The sea is 15k away. 

How do you like that bridge!  I must say that both ancient and modern French engineering has much to be admired!

In the town itself there is quite a Celtic influence and many of the locals have red hair too! 

If you are lucky enough to visit Brittany, don't for goodness sake skip Dinan!
Galettes (both savoury and sweet crepes) are a local specialty as is apple cider.
