This old chateau and tower are well worth a visit for something interesting to do and some history of the area. There are stunning views of the town and surrounds to be seen from the inside walls.

The sights were interesting and the pace about right. If your French is weak be sure to stand near the guide.

Realmente es una visita recomendable, sobre todo la vista desde lo más alto de sus torre. Interesante colección de lápidas medievales. Audoguia con muy buena información.

We simply love Dinan & visit at least 6 times a year ( we do live only 35 minutes away!) The view from the ramparts is stunning To fully appreciate Dinan park your car by the port & walk up along the cobbled streets to the old town. At the Porte de Guichet take the steps on the left and... More
