In the walled city, many buildings testify to the rich past of the city of the Veneti located in the heart of the Gulf of Morbihan: the bastion of Gréguennic, the place of the Lices, the Castle-Gaillard, the Cohue, the Cathedral Saint Pierre, the ramparts and their gardens, the Constable's Tower ...

Bastions, towers and gates such as the Prison Gate are the remains of the old walled city.

At the turn of the cobbled streets of the intramural, you will also discover "Vannes and his wife" famous portrait carved on an old house that becomes iconic image of the city. Close by, the Château-Gaillard, museum of prehistory which houses very beautiful archaeological collections.

Leaving the old town, south side, by Porte Saint Vincent, you will arrive at the marina of Vannes, a very pleasant place with its esplanade, its restaurants and its cafés' terraces.

The Tourist Office offers guided tours of the historic heart of the city and a discovery tour aboard a small tourist train.
