The coast of North-Brittany

Northbrittany

Steep rise the rocks of northern Brittany on the sea, the waves breaking on the stone. Picturesque fishing villages line the banks and defiant castle walls protect the half-timbered houses in cities like Dinan. Everywhere in Brittany, history has left traces. The naturalness of the landscape makes it so charming and adorable pure as the people who inhabit it. With all its legends and traditions. The tables in the northern Brittany are richly covered with seafood, vegetables and fish. The French "Country by the Sea", by the Gauls once "Armorica" called, knows how to receive connoisseurs.
