Once the feared base of pirates and heavily fortified against Norman attacks, today's coastal Saint-Malo is one of the top tourist draws. The star of the show is the \"intramuros,\" an atmospheric walled part of the town that was largely destroyed in World War II, but was painstakingly reconstructed. Saint-Malo is small town, easily covered on foot. There's plenty to do and see, from the sailboats in the harbor to the historic ramparts, from the world's first tidal power station to the impressive tides--you can be sure to find something to do for every member of the family. Try some good eats while you’re here, like Kouing Aman, a Breton cake made with butter, sugar, and sometimes apple--try to get a piping hot one--and shellfish since you're in Brittany, the mussel and oyster capital of France. Add Saint-Malo and other France destinations to your travel plans using our France itinerary maker website.
