August 10, 2021
This stage is short but rich in a multitude of sites to discover.Your path will first pass through the impressive ruins of the Guildo castle and then join the greenway linking Dinan to Dinard.From Dinard, a rich seaside town, a ferry will be necessary to cross the Rance and reach the corsair town of Saint-Malo.Wonderful vintage boats anchor in front of the city and add to the atmosphere. The town of Jacques Cartier (French navigator, explorer. Born in 1491 in Saint-Malo) will amaze you with its ramparts overlooking the ocean and its multiple monumental entrances as well as its maze of streets.Note that it was completely destroyed during the bombings of the Second World War and then rebuilt identically.Further on, the enigmatic sculpted rocks of Rothéneuf will surprise you.The road arrives at the end of the stage at the quays of the town of Cancale where you can taste fresh oysters and celebrate a beautiful day.The seafood restaurants face the beach. The route ends in the city center, where you will find plenty of accommodation options.
