Quite interesting for this type of site in France, the French don't seem to be able to make their great sites come to life. Having said that, this is a great site and deserves a visit. Just be ready for a lot of stone spiral stairs.

Great value for money (cheap entry fee) you are pretty much free to roam this old castle and go up onto the roof for some amazing views. Staff are friendly and there are information cards in fairly good English. Well worth a visit if you are in this area.

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.

An intriguing castle with 2 towers to visit and fascinating exhibitions. Typically French in layout using the building as a backdrop rather than recreating scenes. Well restored. Lots of spiral staircases to climb! The crypt has fascinating tomb effigies which say much about the roles and status of men and women in the Middle Ages. Enjoyed my visit, good value... More

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

This is one of (if not the) main attraction in Dinan (with the old city, and the bridge). Nice medieval structure.
