Saint Malo, Intra-Muros

Saint-Malo was very well know in the past for piracy.

We can see so many ancient houses, and buildings.

Saint-Malo at the time of the Moyen Age was still a  fortified island by the river “The Rance”.

St. Malo is, for the romantics out there, the setting of  the 11th century famous love story of Marie de France poem: Laustic,

Between 1490 and 1493, Saint-Malo had become an independent republic, taking the motto “not French, not Breton, but Malouins”.

One of my favorite city of the world…charming, full of history, the boats and the ocean, and this incredible wind…
